Honestly, actually make an effort by reading the INSTALL and README files before posting, but, oh well.
I'll assume you probably havent even un tarred and zipped it.. so
Put the .tar.gz file where you have permisson to write...
Terminal Window
type...
gzip -d wine*.gz
tar -xvf wine*.tar
cd wine*
./tools/wineinstall
That should do it.

Now I have a question for installing wine. Hopefully someone can help. Whenever I follow the steps above, I end up with:

[username@localhost wine-20031016]$ ./tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

Running configure...

configure: creating cache config.cache
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Yeah, I had problems with Wine, too. It's looking for a glibc version that's newer than the one that shipped with 9.0, and even after I installed the updated RPMS, it never took hold. There's a config.cache file you may have to delete, or something, after you get all the dependencies figured out.

You might also try installing the "development" stuff from the install disks. It's roomy, but there's some compilers and libraries that might solve some problems for you.
