    The easiest way to get WINE in Ubuntu is to use Ubuntu's built-in package installer. You should see an icon for "Add/Remove Programs" or something similar in your menu system. That will open up the Synaptic Package Manager. You can then search for "wine" and install the package that pops up.

    Source code is exactly what it sounds like: code that gets interpreted into instructions for your computer. Source code by itself won't run; it has to be compiled (translated) into machine code first. Unless you're a programmer you will likely never want to download the source code for a program.

    Binaries are executable files. Think of them like EXE files in Microsoft Windows. They have already been compiled and should execute without any special steps on your part.

    Is your Ubuntu install connected to the internet?

    Well, Ubuntu's software manager will not work without a source for the packages. Usually this means the internet. Start a thread in the "Wireless Internet" section and we can probably help you get that set up.
