Whoa, let's calm things down a little shall we. The terminal is the name of the commandline application. If I remember correctly unless you change it, firefox downloads direct to your desktop. In your terminal type:
Code:
cd Desktop
and press enter. Now type ls and look for the wine rpm in the list. If you don't see it then it has been saved elsewhere on you system. If you do see it make sure you are in root mode and type either Galaxy_Strangers command or type mine.

Um... ok so, I just got to the little window for "Downloads" that I already had opened. I didn't see anything like " - save files to"

You missed the options step

then look at the main tab at the download section

I didn't see it and I checked to see if I had it saved somewhere else by trying to use YaST again. Same result as usual: froze on the "Initializing-..." part, and then I had to 'force quit'. Also,

billymayday: There was no "options" tab. o_o

If you don't mind let's start from scratch. In firefox click on edit then go to preferences and select the main tab. Select Save files to then click browse and select your home folder. Click open (it should now have your download location as /home/<your username>), now click close to close the preference window. Re-download wine. Once that is done you can open a terminal and type either of the previous commands.

....you're just making me go in a circle. Not only were my preferences already downloaded to my home folder location, but just in case I tried downloading wine again. Nothing.

It is not intentional, I'm trying to acertain where you might be going wrong. Have you looked in your home folder to see if the file is actually in there?

Lol, I will try to make this as painless as possible. Close every window, app that you have open at the moment. Open a terminal. Type: su and press enter, type in your root password and press enter. If you have got no errors so far type the following:
Code:
rpm -ivh wine-1.0-3.2.i586.rpm
and press enter. Wine should now begin to install. When install has finished type exit and press enter to return to normal user mode, then close your terminal window.

Depends on the firefox version. If Nexus's suggestion doesn't work, tell us what version you are using

error: open of wine-1.0-3.2.i586.rpm failed: No such file or directory

Waaah!! Everything was working fine up until the installation part was supposed to happen. *sniff* I really had faith this time. ;_;

In your terminal do: ls (that's a lowercase L) then post here the full name of the wine file that you see.

In your terminal window type exit to return to normal usermode. Now look at the line before your flashing cursor, do you see something like this: yourusername@localhost ~ The ~ sign in the important part, that indicates you are in your home directory.
