The preferred method to installing wine, as well as other packages in openSUSE, is to use the Software installation under YaST. To do this, start YaST (as root), select Software Management, and then search for the desired package. You may, however, need to add repositories to your list in order to get certain packages. To do this, again start YaST as root, and then select Software Repositories and then follow the prompts to add repositories to your list. It is much easier (in my opinion) to add repositories in openSUSE 11.0 than it was in subsequent releases, so you should hopefully have very little problems in doing so.
Since you are unable to download from your openSUSE laptop, you should automatically have the openSUSE CD or DVD added as a repository. I believe that wine is on there, at least on the DVD (not certain for CD), so you may be able to install from there.
