Angry Wine

Where can I find wine? I though that it would be included when I installed Mandrake 8.2 (which is what I am running). But I cant find it anywhere so I am assuming that I have to download it. Do I? Where can I get it? And how would I install it? If it should be in the OS already then where is it located?

You can do "rpm -ql wine" to see all that files that come with it (if it is installed).

If you have the download edition, you'll find it on cd 2 & 3. You can install it using the package manager. Do a search on "wine" then Install. It worked that way for me, however I am having problems in starting it and making it work... good luck.
