Once it is installed, open up a terminal, cd to the directory with the *.exe file you want to execute, then run the command "wine <name>.exe". leaving off the extension will run the .exe file, even if more than one of the same name exist in the directory.

You can set up different options by running "winecfg", and this is worth taking a look through.
