Installing Wine on a Ububtu system.

Hi folks.
I've downloaded Wine from
I'm new to Linux and was (prob wrongly) expecting an install.exe type file.

Can someone talk me throug the installation process?

Or even recommend some reading that'll get me up and running with some basic Ubuntu skills.

Thanks loadsly.

Hope this helps. The preferred method to install software is via package management.
