From your link-
Download Ubuntu packages - binary and source .debs for Ubuntu Karmic (9.10), Lucid (10.04 LTS), Maverick (10.10), and Natty (11.04)
It probably should still work with ubuntu 8.04 or 8.10, but it might not as well.
BTW, 8.10 is totally out of support, 8.04 is still supported, for the server (no desktop) version. Ubuntu 8.XX should not be used for a desktop now in my opinion. It would be better to get a newer version that is still 100% supported- 10.04, 10.10, 11.04. Or change distro.

Yes, it should be done in the terminal. But the proper command would help-
sudo apt-get install wine
As far as I know, if you have 8.04 the repos should still be up, but with 8.10 they will not so you cant 'apt-get install' anything.
If you can still get the repos, why not install a linux native bible? Either of these commands should still work, if the repos are up-
sudo apt-get install gnomesword
sudo apt-get install bibletime
