Hi there... I'll make it easier then having to install from source... Keep in mind, just because you install wine, doesn't mean that all apps will work correctly. Here is a link to the download site that has a download for your Mandriva distro. Meaning you download, click, install thats it. Mandriva has a package manager that will assist the install without compiling code.
You might want to go to there documentation site on commands and configuration. Also check wine's app site http://appdb.winehq.org too check on compatibility and application support for your windows app. Hope this helps.
