    I've never used wine so can't help at all with configuring it but for simply installing it under Slackware you can find a package built for it at http://www.linuxpackages.net then use pkgtool to install it.

    Don't know if the wine works gread or you just managed to install it...

    Can't help you with that, but i had problems using wine-something.tgz package so i compiled from source and it works fine.

    If wine won't work you could download the source from www.winehq.org and install it using wineinstall script, it is located in <dir_where_you_unpacked_source>/tools/wineinstall

    or compile it:

    ./configure
    make depend
    make
    checkinstall - as root, if you want to create an wine-xxx.tgz file, or just make install , also as root

    Also, there is a lot of documentation os www.winehq.org

    Good luck!
