Just an extra question. What are you planning to use wine for? Because I've to say, besides notepad and textpad, I could not run much stuff with wine . Maybe you would prefer to use a native linux program. This table of equivalents Windows - Linux is very very handy... WineX is a totally different beast though. It runs Windows games very well and brought me nothing but happiness

Sorry to take long time to reply, I kinda fell sleep last night . You could always try installing rpms too. I personally don't like them, but sometimes they do the job. Download a wine rpm and install it with:

rpm -ivh wine-yadda-yadda-yadda

Regards!

Note: That would also work with Mandrake if you will give that one a try
