Hello i have been trying to install wine in my PCLINUX os linke for eternity , first it asked for flex package that I installed , Now it asks for BISON package , i cant even find the download , i have googled it where do i find BASION and is there a way i can just DOWNLOAD all the dependencies of WINE in one single zipped file instead of googling it every instant??
also i have a MSI graphic card with NVIDIA FX 5600 chip , i have installed nvidia drivers NOW CAN I PLAY 3D GAMES IN LINUX WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM ?? ..

Oh lord, it's one of those windows replacment distros. God help us all...

As for installing wine. It does say software installed included. Use it. If wine or at least wines dependencies arent in their special installer, install something else. Nothing is easy when they decide to change everything to make it "easy"

How are you trying to install wine?

It installs with no problem at all if you simply install it from Synaptic.

You also might want to install winetools from thac's repo.

In order to install winetools make sure you have one of the following in your sources.list

rpm pclinuxos/2004 thac
rpm pclinuxos/2005 thac

You might want to take a look at the PCLOS wiki:
