Note specifically that you can set the directory you wish to use as the "C:" drive for Wine. By default, this is /home/USER/.wine/drive_c but you can set it to any directory you wish, including a pre-existing Windows directory on your computer. However, changing the default directory may cause some problems with Wine and is not recommended.
You can set a link to your home folder for the Wine "C:" drive to make it easier to find:
ln -s ~/.wine/drive_c ~/drive_c
