If you compile from the source it will walk you through most of the major setup issues.. very helpfull if you never used wine before. Just use the automated install script.

So try to install package for 686 arch...i've done it a few times I am also running 386 kernel image.

Wine package works as good (or as shitly) as compiled from the source..on my PC;-)
