download it
extract it
run :
./configure
make
su -c "make install"
or simply go into the tools folder of the extracted source, and run "wineinstall" which will "hold your hand" so to speak with doing the above three steps ...
and the above will also prompt you where you want to put your fake windows drive, and it will generate the "default" config files ...

i know that was a quick and easy step by step ... but that is all there is to it...
plus once you extract the source, there is README and INSTALL files which can help you and there is also of course www.winehq.com that has instructions ...
