Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Does wine work on other programs? It could be a problem with the setup.exe you're trying to run.
What version of wine did you install? (type wine --version) Newer ones tend to be less buggy than old ones.
edit: You also probably do not want to be running wine as root. Wine is not quite stable, and many Windows/DOS programs are not quite stable either, so running as a normal user will help to minimize the damage it can cause

This dialog box is a temporary status dialog to let you know
that Wine is attempting to launch your application.
Since Wine is still very much in a development stage,
many applications will fail silently.
This dialog box is your indication
that we're *trying* to run your application.
This dialog box will automatically disappear after 30 seconds,
or after your application finishes.
You can permanently disable this dialog by selecting
the option below.
