you get the latest wine by using the instructions on the wineHQ website 
download department on how to use Ubuntu to integrate the wine 
repository into your ubuntu sources list.

    Or do I do this sudo apt-get install

winecfg is a (sort of) command line command that you can issue from konsole.

Is the default location the c:\ drive?

The default location of (nearly) any windows application is C:\Program 
Files\<name of application>. So it will be c:\program files\e-Sword\

the wineHQ website links to it, otherwise the first google finding for 
"winetricks" will directly lead you to further information about it.

Strictly by reading the EULAs of any microsoft application which you 
will install. It is widely known, that for example Intenet Explorer 6 
and the MS Webfonts, if the latter are taken directly form Microsoft, 
require you to have a windows license, ex. Win 9x or newer. The same 
applies AFAIK for DCOM98, but I am not sure. However I am sure that 
there are others, where essentially the same will apply.

Basically just install "anything" and you are done.

I love this statement.  I cannot think of any way to summarize this fact 
of Computing shorter and more precisely;-))

kind regards and good luck. As usual, if you encounter problems, do not 
hesitate to ask
