Unhappy Wine installation help!

I'm very new to linux and I'm running Fedora Core 1. I need help installing wine. I clicked the rpm file instead of running itthrough a terminal. Can anyone help me take the package out and properly install it in very descriptive details? please help me!

Take a look here for general information about installing programs in Linux. It's better to get used to the command line, mind you .

Also, make sure that you need wine. I tell you this because wine is pretty close of being useless. And due "improvements" made with 2004 versions, Wine is getting closer and closer to that. Rants apart, check this table of replacements programs of Windows. You much better off using a Linux native application then using wine.

Note, WineX is a totally different beast then wine. It's optimized to run DirectX-based games and usually, it works.

Good luck!
