Winex Install did i do it right and if so how do i run it now?

I did the full install by using the tar under the root login in x. It went thru the whole speil and finished at root. so good i am thinking... then when i type in wine nothing comes up... how do i run this program?

Also, if someone has time help me with the config editor for my nvidia geforce driver... dont think i have done it right but not sure i still have a Load Dri in there and dont know how to get rid of it...

I would suggest posting separate problems separately in respective forum categories (Hardware, for the Nvidia question). You might get better results.

That said, wine has to be executed on an .exe file. So for example, let's assume you wanted to install something from a CD, say Photoshop. You would insert the CD, "cd" in to the CDROM ("cd /mnt/cdrom") and run the .exe setup program with:

wine setup.exe

You will find that many linux/unix tools run are this way.

If you prefer, you can also set wine as the default application for .exe files (most windowm mangaers, KDE, GNOME support this), and then just double click on them.
