Wine will create fake windows drive (C: ) itself - just run wine or winetools (package can be found in backports repositories). You will find the drive in /home/your_user_name/.wine. And if you install programs with "wine program.exe" they will find this fake drive automatically.

It's actually NOT a good idea to use a C: drive with Wine-- at least, it's a bad idea to use a Windows installation for Wine. If you already have a Windows installation you can run SOME programs you've installed (ones that don't put files everywhere), but it's normally a better idea to just install them through wine.
