Hi THE MASTER (of what?)
Does the windoze application you want to run actually run on Wine??
Check first, as there are many windoze apps that use undocumented short 
cuts to achieve their aims but thus cause problems for wine.
If you are running CentOS it would first of all pay to get current - the 
version you quote is not!
One of the big reasons for CentOS is that users want stability - thus 
use RPMs, any time you roll your own with tarballs you risk breaking 
some dependancy - and as always, you get to keep the pieces.
I think CentOS and rpmforge do not have wine, epel does, however I find 
that the packages on this site are not always as robust as I like. YMMV.
Do read the CentOS wiki and the many excellent howtos before proceeding.
