Ubuntu and wine for complete newbie

Ok I've loaded down WINE using the Synaptic Package Manager in Ubuntu.
What now? Nothing appears when i look in applications like all the other Ubuntu progs I've downloaded
Where did Wine go to? How do I activate it???
I want to open a program from windows -medio player -turns pc into a fully funtioning media centre pc.
This will enable me to stream content from my Windows PC to my Linux PC without the worry of Virus software slowing it down to a crawl
Help please
