If you have Wine downloaded already, you should be able to install it based on what type of file it is. If it is an RPM, open your terminal, become root, and type "rpm -Uvh filename" where filename is the name of the Wine RPM package. If you downloaded it as a tar.gz file, it must be configured. Open the terminal, and type "tar -zxvf filename". then change directories to where the files were extracted to, and type "./configure", after that has finished type "make", and following that "make install". That should work...

If you have wine installed, I have found the easiest way to get everything set up in wine is by downloading and installing winetools. You can find it easily using google.

Once winetools is installed, run wt2 as normal user and setup you r fake windows system and install the needed windows system files, and you're good to go.

[root@***********usr]# rpm -Uvh wine-20050419-1fc3winehq.i386.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:wine                   ########################################### [100%]
I typed wine in term, after and got this:

Code:
[root@***********usr]# wine
wine: creating configuration directory '/root/.wine'...
wine: '/root/.wine' created successfully.
Wine 20050419
Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...]   Run the specified program
       wine --help                   Display this help and exit
       wine --version                Output version information and exit
[root@***********usr]# wine help
fixme:winhelp:MACRO_About ()

Try going to wine's website and reading the excellent documentation they provide.

Do you suppose something like

$ wine "/mnt/windows/Program Files/application_directory/application.exe"

might work?
