Installiong wine from hard drive

I have a computer running linux zenwalk that is not connected to the internet. I have put the wine directory on my the computer with a flash drive. Could someone tell me how to make wine available to run on my computer? I don't care if I am installing, compiling, or just moving the wine directories. (The only thing I've ever compiled is java source code).

Are you talking about the wine directory containing the binaries, or just the .wine directory located within your home directory? You will have to install wine normally, and not via copying just the binary directory straight over, since installing wine manually also creates other directories.




wine, wineinstall, zenwalk
