Installing Wine from Knoppix Live CD?

Ok, this is a little bit of a hack but here is my situation, I have a working install of FC5 from DVD and it came with a Knoppix Live CD. Fedora did not come with Wine but the Knoppix CD has a working install of Wine on it. I know I can just do "yum install wine" to install Wine on Fedora but the only thing I can get out here is 28.8 dial-up and yum goes REALLY slow.

How would you go about copying the Wine install off of the Knoppix CD and getting it to run on the Fedora install?

If you go to /var you might find a list of packages to install. If it is in a .tar.gz format then just copy it somewhere or if you have a flash drive copy it to a flash drive. Other than that I wouldn't know how.
