I am completely beginner with linux, so forgive for my stupid questions.

I would like to know how to do to expand and install the Wine...tar.gz file in linux.

I tryed to open a console and typed the complete filename (with being in the same folder of file) but I always get error, while if I try to doubleclick in Gnome it automatically creates a virtual folder

Are you unzipping the file first. tar.gz you must type a command like this before the file:
tar -xzvf /then the file name
That should unzip the file in a new directory and then from there you should find a Readme or Install text file to follow the installation procedures.
