Unhappy Which version of wine works well on redhat 8

I am using redhat 8 on PIII-933 Mhz machine and wished to install wine on my system.

I manually installed the wine rpm that came with my distro cd (redhat 8-psyche).
rpm -i wine-20020605-2.src.rpm
but i got warnings like
no key dba4230e
Then i downloaded Wine-20031212.tar from net(latest version i assume) and this is a source file.Hence i have to compile and install it.The 'readme 'asked me to type
(wineinstall is afile inside tools subdirectory) at the top level of source file at text prompt.

I did exactly and it started checking configurations and proceeded to instal.Some gibberish were running for 15 minutes and the at the end it said

2 errors aborting installation.

Can any one tell me ,whether i wrongly installed them or is this the case for all.suggest me a nice version compatible with RedHat 8.

the latest version should be compatible as well as all other versions, if you give us the last 10 or so lines of output then we can likely better help you to understand the errors, the first one that comes to mind is were you root? though i think wine has scripts to make sure you arent and then asks you to su when it gets to make install, also wine is rather large check that you have plenty of open disk space
