Smile I need help "installing" YahElite

Ok, I'm a newbie . I just installed Kubuntu, and love it! However, I need to make Yahelite work, and being a fresh newbie at this, I don't know how to use the "terminal" etc . I thought I was doing it correctly, but don't get anything for my efforts. Yahelite doesn't actually make a linux version, but it states it will work in wine. NOW....I also tried to put on wine. Don't even know how to do that I guess, lol. Anyway... HELP. I did search to see if this question had been asked, but found no resolution to the problem. Guess I am just too spoiled with windows doing the installing for me... Thank you ahead for any help.

Do you have wine installed? If not, just type “sudo apt-get wine” followed by the enter key in a terminal. It should ask you for your password (unless you just recently gave it to sudo for a different command). Setup your initial wine configuration with winecfg (again, type “winecfg” in a terminal followed by enter). Then, just issue something like “wine my_cool_program.exe” (in a terminal) to run any windows “.exe” executable. You can also setup (if you so chose) a binfmt_misc wine handler that lets you merely click on an “.exe” file and have it open with wine (not sure if this is done automagically by *buntu wine packages or not).
