Using Wine with Puppy

(I'm new to Linux, so please bear with me if I am not making any sense)

So I have Puppy installed to my HDD. I would like to use Wine, so I downloaded the source (as the other packages are distro specific). When I try to run "./tools/wineinstall" (as a user), I get the following:
Warning !! wine binary (still) found, which may indicate
a (conflicting) previous installation.
You might want to abort and uninstall Wine first.
(If you previously tried to install from source manually,
run 'make uninstall' from the wine root directory)
Running configure...

configure: creating cache config.cache
configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash tools/config.sub

Configure failed, aborting install.
And then when I type "make uninstall" I get "make: No such file or directory" as a user, and when I log in as root to try that, then the error is "bash: make: command not found". And Wine won't let me use root to install at all.

Now I am assuming here that the binary it is finding is a result of a previous installation attempt... how can I find and remove this file that is causing the conflict? Or how else can I go about installing Wine?

Is there maybe an equivalent to the windows registry or something I could use to remove all instances and references to wine binaries?

If you mean the packages are distro specific for distos other than Puppy then I suggest this link which will take you to a page containing download links and install instructions for a dotpup of wine on the official Puppy Linux forum
You could try deleting any file named wine* in /usr/bin/ (if any exist) and then running your install. I suggest you make a back-up copy of the files first. That way you can replace them if needed.
Good luck
