Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Actually, I think what's happening is that the ./configure is not in then /usr or /install dirs
If you don't want to use the package management that comes with slack (and I personaly don't blame you, don't use it myself), then untar Wine
tar -xzvf wine-xx.x.x.tgz
cd to the directory it created
Side note: a *.tgz is simply (typically) another way of saying *.tar.gz - treat it as such
I really appreciate the extra information, but all I was looking for is anything that would make it... work... lol
Wow, it's that simple? Ok, well thanks guys, especially you m00t00, because it was your fix that I tried first. I just didnt want to reply too soon because I've done that before when one thing worked and another didn't and I ended up double-posting with an edit of a new problem.
Now all I need to do is learn Wine.. Thanks again. =)
scuzzman, yes you can, but last time I checked, it was a binary package, with the files in the package as they would be relative to the root directory (IE you have a /path/to/untarred/slackpack/usr, and all the files under there would install under /usr). Now mabye im wrong, and they changed formats, but thats not the nicest thing to try to compile from source, no? =D
Im having a similar problem... it tells me that the directory cannot be found... i have followed the instructions on the website.. yet it dosnt work and when i try slack installpkg command it say the file is not a tgz
