I don't think it matters where you put it. You can install it with your package manager on your desktop if you want.

Just download it to your home folder or onto your desktop. Then install.

Navigate to your home directory in a terminal,for example:

cd /home/user

Check the file is located in your home directory with ls

Then install the file with:

dpkg -i package.deb

Installation must be done as root in Debian or using sudo in Ubuntu.

The file listed above is all that you need. I don't see why you need to install any other version of wine

The solution has been provided by the trooper in his post above.

Open a terminal

If you saved the file to your desktop type:

cd Desktop then type: sudo dpkg -i winerc1_patched.deb

or if you have saved the file in your home folder type:

sudo dpkg -i winerc1_patched.deb

that should install the package.

Why don't you use synaptic?
Code:
sudo aptitude install wine
N.B:curious,why do you want to install wine in linux?

well if you are having so much of an issue install wine maybe you should try by source code.

Get the source code and install like this

Code:
$ cd /home (or where ever you want the file to go)
$ wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Source/wine-1.1.30.tar.bz2/download
$ tar xvf wine-1.1.30.tar.bz2 (which ever version your chose)
$ cd wine-1.1.30
$ ./configure
$ make depend
$ make
# make install
 
# make uninstall (to Uninstall)
I use slackware but that is how I install it. But the package manager should be easier
