    AFAIK, WINE is basically used to run simple programs for win platforms on linux. Yes you can install Winamp over wine in linux, though I am not sure whether it will work fine or not .., at least didnt work well with me.
    However, if playing .wma files is the only reason you want to install Winamp over wine, then I suggest you should rather go for xmms-wma. Its a separate plugin for xmms to play .wma files, available in both tarballs and RPMs. I seriously recommend this because thats what I use mostly, and my XMMS can now play .wav, .ogg, .mp3, .mp4, .wma. I dont think I'll need anything more for now at least.

    Also, WINE is more rigorously used for porting win games to linux, especially with Winex Cedega project now running full flow.

    WinAmp works fine on linux, but i do advise you to try xmms, it's winamp-like and pretty decent
