.... you don't run wine wrapper...
if you installed it from the suse rpm.. first, go to, go into the binaries section, sourceforge, and go get the latest wine RPM 200308013 I think, and rpm -Uvh that so it'll upgrade...
Then, go browse into the directory where you want to run a windows program, and double click the exe file, it should load.

If you cant go and double click cause you compiled wine yourself...
go to the directory of your windows file in an x-term window, and type wine yourprogram.exe
