    To install the rpm you can do 2 things.

    Use the GUI interface and open an 'explorer' and right click on it and select open with other -> File installer.
    It should ask for a superuser password.

    Or open a terminal session
    Switch to superuser (root) (with su -) (don't forget the minus sign)
    rpm -Uvh <Package.rpm>  &#40;if it's in your home dir it would look like&#58; /home/myhomedir/package.rpm&#41;
    rpm -i = install
    rpm -U = Upgrade.
    Why use -U : If an existing version of Wine is allready installed this will UPGRADE your existing installation.
    Otherwise you might end up with 2 versions of wine, and you have to figure it out how to start the newest or older version.

    For more details check the tutorial section, it has an entry to the ultimate rpm guide.
