Please don't do that. The attached message has nothing to do with your 
question and attaching an entire digest message is only irritating. 
Please start a new mail instead (with many mail programs you only need 
to click the list address). Furthermore it helps to use a meaningful 
subject line.

There are no drive letters in Linux. There is only one big directory 
tree and you mount shares at arbitrary mount points within this 
directory tree. Furthermore I can't imagine that your "oracel 
application" needs a drive letter if it is a Linux version of the 
program. OTOH, maybe you want to run a Windows version of the 
application using Wine. Then please clarify what exactly you want to do 
and maybe someone else can help you setting up Wine accordingly.
