    Use the package manager of your distro to install software. Wine is available on virtually 100% of the linux distros.

    Distro is short for Linux Distribution i.e. The name of the version of Linux you are using e.g. Fedora 9, Ubuntu 8.04 etc.

    I think that Linpus is based on Fedora. You might be able to install and manage software packages using rpm, yum or synaptic. Try looking for synaptic around your menus, or open a terminal and try to run it from there.

    Don't you have a printed Linpus manual or something like that? If you have, then the procedure to install software in Linpus should be described there.

    If not, I think that you can download them here:

    Linpus Web Site - Downloads
