Using DVDShrink with Wine in Mandriva

Hello you guys. I 'm new in Linux since I was using Windows before. I used to copy DVDs removing any protection and shrinking 'em from DVD9 to DVD5 mainly using DVDShrink 3.2. Don't know if you 've heard it before. This way I would like to use the same program in Linux. So I have the setup.exe pack in a CD and I just wonder "Now what?". I 've heard so much about WINE but I don't know what to do. The only thing I could think was to right-click it and select open with WINE but after the first dialog window where I press next it goes no more further. I think I 'm doing it wrong so could someone please tell me how do I use Wine? Thank you ... :-)

afaik, if it's configured properly, you just run the executable with the wine command, e.g., "wine notepad.exe," or "wine /path/to/winamp.exe," etc. i've never used it for much, but it works for most small things for me that way in slackware and arch. not a big help, but i hope that at least answers part of the question.
