if you're using the wine installation that comes with suse 9.0, the easiest (and quickest) way to get everything going is to use the 'winesetup' program - just type 'winesetup' (or was it 'winesetuptk', can't remember - try both!) in a console.
you should then be presented with a graphical installation program that makes the process relatively simple, and which will provide a good basis on which you can fine tune things if necessary.
btw, in my humble opinion, suse 8.2 did the whole wine thing better than suse 9.0 - integration was much tighter, file associations were correctly set up, etc. i wonder out loud whether the extra cost option of 'wine rack' means that suse decided to strip down the installation included with the distro... anyway, rant over - see how you get on.
