.exe files are not native linux applications therefore they do not run on linux. (there is an emulator for win16/32 binaries but it's kinda hit and miss with regards to what apps will and will not run on it).

What disto are you using? ( the reason i ask is some distro's set up your cd drives for you and some do not).

You mean wine? Try "man wine" if you managed to install it.
Do not expect everything to run with wine, you really can get pretty much all the information you need from winehq (see post #3).
