having a few problems installing WoW with Wine

Well i have looked through alot of manuals and guides on how to do it with Wine, but i am having a few problems with it (in places where the guides weren't clear).

The Problems:
1. I have Linux Red Hat x86....what version is that?
(cause in the wine download page there is Red Hat version 8,9 and Fedora Core 1 to 4)

2. On each version in the Wine download page there r 5 types of files to down load...i686,i386,athlon,development package and source which one do i need???

3. All of the Wine files (no matter which type) r with .rpm ... Do i need a sepcial software to open it? because when i try to open any of the files it says it can't open it cause a file is missing or doesn't open anything after it asks for the root password.

4. (last one When i run the patch command files in what dirctory should i be? and in what dirctory should the patches be?

I am sry if some or all of my questions r nooby but i am new to Linux and thnx in advance to anyone who posts answers to my problems.
