If I read it correctly you can't.

The .part at the end of the filename usually denotes that it hasn't finished downloading.

When it has finished type

cd /root/Desktop
tar xfz Wine-20050310-i486-S10.tgz

then cd into the dir it creates and look for a file called either README or INSTALL. They will tell you what to do next.

(probably ./configure && make && make install)

OK

I've just downloaded the file and decompressed it.

Have you even looked at the contents of the file?

there is a dir called install so type

'cd install'

in the install dir there is a shell script called 'doinst' type

'sh doinst'

that will install it.

The other file in install says this

Wine: Wine (Client, server, and winelib)
Wine:
Wine: Wine Is Not an Emulator, it is an alternative implementation of the
Wine: Windows 3.x and Win32 APIs. Wine provides both a development toolkit
Wine: (Winelib) for porting legacy Windows sources to Unix and a program
Wine: loader, allowing unmodified Windows 3.1/95/NT binaries to run under
Wine: Intel Unixes. Please, PLEASE read the README or else Wine probably <---------- READ THIS
Wine: won't work for you. <---------- AND THIS

The readme is in \usr\doc\Wine-20050310\README after you run the doinst script

Thankyou my memory just needed to be refreshed about how to install wine. I ended up using the installpkg command and than the file name and that worked
