Problems installing Wine on Mandrake 10

OK, I'm a Linux newb wanting for a Warcraft fix. I have a problem when I use the standard installer included with Wine. It runs fine, until it gets to the make step, where it progresses for a bit of time then halts with an error.

Here are the last few lines before it craps out:
bison -y -ppp -d -t ./ppy.y
make[2]: *** [] Broken pipe
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/nick/winesource/wine-20040615/libs/wpp'
make[1]: *** [wpp] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/nick/winesource/wine-20040615/libs'
make: *** [libs] Error 2

Any help figuring this problem out would be greatly appreciated.

From wine site:
Ivans comment that the Mandrake RPMs didn't work on Red Hat/Fedora surprised me, so after encountering a stuck Mandrake user for whom the RPMs weren't working either on IRC I decided to check them out.

It turns out the reason they don't work on Fedora is because they don't work at all - wine.inf is in /usr/share/doc/wine-20040615 which is wrong, it needs to be in /usr/share/wine. As this file is in the wrong place Wine refuses to start on a new users account.

Once I manually copied the file to the right place Wine worked just fine.
