When you download it do it as a user.
Then su to get root privileges.
# rpm -iv wine-lateat version.rpm
this creates a directory /home/user/.wine
It also installs several subdirectories like dosdevices/ and drive_c/
(It is assumed here that you have a windows file system on your first
The subdirectory drive_c has two subdirectories windows/ and Program Files/
locate the program you would like to run under wine.
e.g Freecell you will find in /Windows/System32/freecell.exe
copy it to the created dir Program files.
# exit (this gets you back to user)
select Konqueror or your favored browser and locate freecell.exe int the
directory tree of .wine
click on it and drag it to your desktop
close your browser, then click on the icon for freecell.
play and enjoy!
