FIRST
what is it you want to install?
also a .exe file is a Microsoft windows program .If we knew what it is you want to install then we can point you to the linux version of it ( if it exists )

PC Linux OS is most probably based on Fedora. There is a good chance that wine is available in the repositories of the package manager for your distribution.

Welcome to LQ.

PCLinuxOS is based on Mandrake / Mandriva,
but uses "apt for rpm" + Synaptic for package management.

# apt-get install wine
will do ( or use Synaptic ).

Remark : Some, not all, windows app's will work with wine.

PCLinuxOS has it's own site
http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/

and has a "Wine" download available from synaptic.
You will probably find it easier to follow the route PClos -Wine-Windows to get the exe installed, provided it is actually supported in Wine.
