NO--wine is a program to run Windows apps under Linux so you do not need to have Windows!!
wine creates a file structure that looks like that of Windows the command you entered seems to be looking for something named PROGRAM.....What is that? (Or is it possible that you are supposed to be putting in the name of an actual program?)
Wine is just an implimentation of the Windows API's on Unix. So they ahve been clean room reverse engineered or something. This is why not all windows applications will run through wien or some do not function correctly. So you dont need windows.
I don sue wine directly I use corossover office which makes installing supported windows apps and installing them much easier. If you do not want to use cross over office then there is a gui tool for wine called winedoors. This will make installing software vi wine much easier.
