We present a measurement of relative partial widths and decay rate CP asymmetries in K-K+ and pi(-)pi(+) decays of D-0 mesons produced in p(p) over bar collisions at root s = 1.96 TeV. We use a sample of 2x10(5) D*+-> D(0)pi(+) (and charge conjugate) decays with the D-0 decaying to K(-)pi(+), K-K+, and pi(-)pi(+), corresponding to 123 pb(-1) of data collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. No significant direct CP violation is observed. We measure Gamma(D-0-> K-K+)/Gamma(D-0-> K(-)pi(+)) = 0.0992 +/- 0.0011 +/- 0.0012, Gamma(D-0->pi(-)pi(+))/Gamma(D-0-> K(-)pi(+)) = 0.035 94 +/- 0.000 54 +/- 0.000 40, A(CP)(K-K+) = (2.0 +/- 1.2 +/- 0.6)%, and A(CP)(pi(-)pi(+)) = (1.0 +/- 1.3 +/- 0.6)%, where, in all cases, the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.
