Hi there and welcome LQ.

First go here to download the latest package:

Then open up a terminal

If you are not allready root type

su root
Then to install wine type:

installpkg wine-<date>-i<n>86-S9.tgz
Then create a fake windows folder. For that purpose you can use winetools. Get them here:

Some of your programs may need dcom95 or dcom98 to install.

You can install dcom typing this:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32=n" wine dcom95.exe
Hope this helps you out
