Question RH9 Wine Setup

What are the steps for downloading/ installing/ Wine in RHLinux 9?
I've tried, but don't think I'm following the right steps.

Go to the following website and download the RedHat 9 RPM specific to your CPU (architecture).

To install the RPM, open a terminal, login as root and type:
rpm -ivh wine-20030911-1rh9winehq.arch.rpm

Download the newest tarball (tar.gz file) from

Compile with
./configure --with-nptl
(or.. with-ntpl I never remember which one it is, ./configure --help to get a list of options, should be close to the bottom)


(You'll have to enter your root pass above)
make install

That's in case you don't want to use the RPMs, I've found rpm to cause a lot more problems then it would ever hope to solve. Nasty stuff, use emerge from gentoo instead, or apt-get from debian. They are both available for other distributions with tutorials on how to install.
