so i read the "How To Install Software in Linux" tutorial and i got as far as "more README" command. this what happens when i type in the ./tools/wineinstall that the readme tells me to type:
WINE Installer v0.75
configure: creating cache config.cache
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
it also does this when i run ./configure

In order to install Wine (as well as 99% of all the applications in Ubuntu), you don't need to compile anything.
Just type, in a terminal :
sudo apt-get install wine wine-utils
sudo apt-get install build-essential

Package wine-utils is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
winecfg as root?

If wine-utils is not avalaible maybe it is not necessary on Ubuntu, or it is called something else.
apt-cache search wine"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."
