Trouble installing wine


I'm running Fedora 19 and am using this guide to try to install wine:

http://www.tecmint.com/install-wine-...os-and-fedora/

I'm stuck on step 4. When I enter this in terminal: ./tools/wineinstall

I get this:

Wine Installer v1.0


We need to install Wine as the root user. Do you want us to build Wine,
'su root' and install Wine? Enter 'no' to build Wine without installing:
(yes/no) yes
Running configure...

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes

checking for cpp... cpp
checking for the directory containing the Wine tools... $(top_builddir)
checking for flex... no
configure: error: no suitable flex found. Please install the 'flex' package.

Configure failed, aborting install.

Where do I get this flex package? I've googled this, and have so far only found flex packages for Ubuntu. I don't want to download the wrong one.

My system is 32-bit, btw.

Code:
su -
yum install wine

If you don't mind me asking, why do you need Wine to start with? What are you trying to run, and have you looked for a Linux alternative?
