Unhappy New On Lindows 4.0

Ok I just installed Lindows 4.0 on my pc today. And I know nothing about Lindows or Linux, but i had to convert to run servers.
Anyways I downloaded a .bin file to install on my pc. Using Lindows 4.0 how do i do this? I was told to type /nameofbin.bin in counsole to install this. I dont even know where the "counsole" is i tried the run command and nothing happens.
Does anyone have some basic instructions on how to do this?

Also I downloaded WINE and it is a .gz file. How whould i go about installing this as well all I know is it is compressed?

Thank You, I know I am a noob to this!!!!

lindows is a desktop distro. dont use it for servers. it is debian based and foundation is strong enough thou.

apt-get can be used to install new software. i just ave a detailed answer in this thread

console is the terminal or the command line. you can even use run. just click more option and use terminal

using run to lauch konsole first is a good option though.

apt-get install wine will work.

if you need to build from source(which i dont recommend) i have given the instructions in the thread above too.

irc channel #debian at has a lot of helpful people in case you have doubts

search google for any other questions

for example searching " how do i extract .gz files"
in would have given you the answers pretty fast
