Help my get wine working!

I'm not sure if this'll work, and I don't know if it ever will, but can anybody help me get wine working? I've tried about a dozen attempts to make it work and I can only get it to upen up about 3 simple little windows progs, that's it. I have an Athlon running RH8 with the original kernel, while my windows HD is formatted as NTFS running read-only with windows XP. Every time I install and run I get all these error messages. I just don't get it.

Do you think you could guide me through a step-by-step way to get wine running on my system, from download to install to run? Thanks!

Ironically enough, there is step by step information on how to install wine on my guide. When I used red hat 8.0 (before switching to 7.3) I had wine working great and I even had kazaalite working fine under it. It works great in 7.3 also.

The link to my guide is below in my sig - the info on wine is on the software page.
