I am so excited David.  When I went to the link you provided, I attempted to 
install wine using the suggested code on the page.  I copy and pasted the code 
just to be sure.  It printed numbers instead of what I copied, but I expect 
that is what you had in mind.  Nonetheless, here is the reply in the konsole:

steven at Yeshua:~$ kdesudo apt-get install 08666851

Reading package lists...

Reading state information...
E: Couldn't find package 08666851
steven at Yeshua:~$ sudo apt-get install 08666851
[sudo] password for steven:
Reading package lists... Done

E: Couldn't find package 08666851
steven at Yeshua:~$

Recently I have been advised to use kdesudo instead of sudo; that is the 
reason for the 2 attempts.  I love e-Sword and have installed it many times, 
but it has always been a problem for me.  Consequently, I wanted to check with 
you before I proceed so I don't screw up again.  Thanks for your thoughtful 
work on this application; I am anxious to use it.
