i need help with installation of Wine


HEy there ppl. i just got Mandrake Linux 9.1 just last night and i need help! im trying to install Wine but when i do i get this message:
Password:
[root@localhost scott]# /home/scott/Desktop/wine-20030219/tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

You're running this from the wrong directory.
Change to the Wine source's main directory and try again.
[root@localhost scott]#

and now type 'tools/wineinstall' and press Enter.

bash: cd/home/scott/Desktop/wine-20030219: No such file or directory

1.there is no space between cd and /home/blahblah.
2.dont give the quotes.
3.stop being so foolish.(you cant survive linux with this sort of intelligence -with which you cant find a space or cant copy and paste what i had posted-actually twice!!).ofcource,i assume this is cos' you dont have any experiance with linux.try learning some linux commands.(search google.com) for that.also,feel free to post your doubts.
