using wine/acer aspire one linpus lite

I'm trying to use iTunes and poker sites on my acer aspire one with linux linpus lite. I've followed previous threads and learned how to add/remove programs and I've downloaded wine. (thank heavens for the linux community!!!) But - I can't actually figure out how to use it! My wine programs show up under 'other' and I have: wine configuration; wine file; wine boot; wine software ininstaller and winhelp (not sure if the last is wine or not) Just can't navigate my way through any of these to find how to actually RUN wine. Any help? Also, if you think this is not the best way to fully use poker websites (I'm not happy with the iphone style no download play) or iTunes please make suggestions. Thanks a million guys.

Disclaimer: I know nothing about either iTunes or poker sites; so, I can't really say if wine is the best approach or not.

For wine, though, in general, when you double-click on an exe file, wine automatically opens and launches it. If there is a program that you have installed -- IE, you clicked on an exe file, which installed a program, and now you're looking to find the program and launch it -- you can check the wine directory, which is usually: /home/<username>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files. Note: there's a dot (.) before the "wine", meaning this directory is hidden; so, choose view hidden files in your file manager to see this directory.

Another thought: I've heard that Rhythmbox (aka Music Player) is a Linux application that apparently works with iTunes. For poker sites, try installing the mplayer plugin for firefox (which presumably is your browser), and install w32codecs (assuming you're using a 32-bit computer), and this may help with viewing poker sites, thereby saving you the hassle of installing Windows programs. And install sun-java6-jre.
