problems installing wine

I thought I'd try wine so I downloaded it. When I tried to install it with the installer (./tools/wineinstall) I got an error saying:

configure: error: no suitable bison/yacc found. Please install the 'bison' package.

So I downloaded bison-1.35-3mdk.src.rpm because I have Mandrake 9.1 installed and when I tried to install that it told me I allready had it installed. Can anyone help?

You are aware of the fact that you've downloaded a .src.rpm right?
rpmbuild --rebuild bison-.135-3mdk.src.rpm
search for the rpm in /usr/src/RPM, and install it
rpm -ivh
