go to the directory that holds the executable for the program you want to use and type:
winex3 program.exe
Example:
winex3 unreal.exe

I have the free winex version, and the command is just 'wine'. You shouldn't be concerned where it is, if you must know do a 'whereis wine'. The non-free version of winex may have automatic configuration tools. In case it doesn't, there is Winesetuptk and Winetools (search). You can also configure manually. Copy the sample file (probably in /usr/doc/wine*/samples/config or something (note wildcard)) to ~/.wine/config. Edit it to your liking with the help of it's manual page (i think it's called wine.conf).

If winex was installed successfully, in your home folder should be a directory named Transgaiming_Drive. That will hold any configuration files you may need.
The kewl thing about Winex and Wine is, you dont have to know where they are to run the a win app.

For example:
I want to play the game Unreal. It is located in my home folder.
me@linuxbox~$ ls
Unreal
Stuff
Junk

me@linuxbox~$ cd Unreal/System
me@linuxbox~$ winex3 unreal.exe

Game starts and im killing monstas in no time.

Good Luck

[admin@192 Winamp]$ wine winamp.exe
wine: lstat /home/admin/.wine/wineserver-192.168.1.1/socket : No such file or directory
[admin@192 Winamp]$

i ran winesetuptk and it looked like i did everything right

but i got this error when trying to open anything

i think wine is included with mandrake
but i tried to install winex
and when i type winex3 i get a command not found
