Wine.i386 on a X86_64 Fedora install

Does anyone know if wine works on Fedora Core 64? I can install it via yum but it installs 47 rpm's which most of them i already have installed but the installed ones are .x86_64. So is it safe to install the *.i386 versions of these files and run wine which doesn't seem to have a 64bit version?

Wine needs the 32-bit rpm to the 64-bit installed counterparts, they are not duplicates.

Example command and results:
$ rpm -qa --qf="%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}\n" '*libstdc*' | sort

Thanks for the reply! I have went ahead and just put the 32bit fedora version on. It bugs me that i have so many duplicate packages taking up space. Not that space is an issue anymore just the OCD in me. Anyways I will be putting wine on today and am crossing my fingers!! Can't wait to play SWG on my Linux Box!

Totally understand....... and yes I do agree far to many unnecessary duplicate package are installed by default. Some of course are needed for some 32bit applications but many are not need and just take up space.
