Tom, a word of advice on wine: If you love to tinker and read docs, readme's, and howto's on the road to successfully using software, then download wine and learn to configure it. If you want to skip all that, download one of codeweaver's products. The Crossover Office version is getting decent reviews for running general software (particularly MS Office) and I use the Crossover plugin myself. It works great.
To run software with wine it's best to do a fresh install of the software you want to run with it in a local (linux) partition. Don't try to share install directories with your windows partition if you are dual booting. This is do-able but tricky. Definitely not worth the saved hd space. After you install the software, start it with
"wine /path_to_install_dir/program_name"
If you are referring to WPO2K, it comes with it's own integrated wine and you just click the icons from your menu or desktop. No commands needed.
