Did you install it using an RPM, or from source, or some other method?

If it's RPM, you should just be able to do (as root, from a terminal window):

rpm -e wine

If you installed from source, go to the directory where the source code for wine is located, and try:

make uninstall

Well, how exactly did you go about installing Wine? If it came installed with Redhat, it's most likely installed as an RPM. To find out, try this (from a terminal):

rpm -qa | grep wine

If it gives you a reply, like "wine-2002xxx.rpm", then it's installed as an RPM.

The only way it'd be installed from source is if you installed it yourself, so if you don't know anything about that, then it probably isn't installed from source
