Visit winehq.net and download the newest .tgz file. Run 'installpkg wine.....' to install wine.

Visit http://www.von-thadden.de/Joachim/WineTools/ and install winetools.

Run 'wt2' to run winetools and setup wine and install software!

Daniel

Download the slackware package at: http://www.winehq.com/site/download

Then as root execute:

upgradepkg --install-new <nameofpackage.tgz>

Yes, use the console.
cd to the directory with your downloaded package.
As root, run
upgradepkg --install-new <nameofpackage.tgz>

You could try this:
again, cd to the directory containing your package.
Run as root:

pkgtool

And from this menu choose 'Current', and install your package this way.

When you're in the console, you execute 'ls' to get a view of the directory you're currently in.
Type 'cd name' to change to another directory.
Another useful command is 'man'. Execute 'man cd' to learn more about cd, etc.
