I assume you mean how to get winex from CVS so that you can play windows games. Go to click download -> CVS Tree -> I Agree then follow the instructions to Check out a new CVS repository at the bottom of the page

Download a script from this page to get CVSwineX more easily... it describes what it is doing and it is automated... i used it and learned in days...

Good luck!

By the way to execute a script either double click and run in terminal or open a terminal and do ./<script name> in the right directory to execute a script.
