I am following the following instructions from a forum online.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

ok you are going to have to do this

open up a terminal and type sudo apt-get build-dep wine

while you are downloading these dependencies, you will need to download 
the source code for wine

Http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=6241&package_id=664595

after you are done with installing the dependencies in the terminal, 
open up a new one (you should extract the wine source in as the folder 
in your home folder)

in the terminal type cd wine1.1.6 or whatever the folder is

Then type /.configure

this will take ~3 minutes

after that you will need to do make
which can take 1-3 hours, depending on you cpu

after that is completed, do sudo make install

just make sure you uninstalled your older version of wine just in case.

In line 5 of the above instruction, I opened a new shell.  I extracted 
the wine source into /home/steven/Desktop

It's name is wine-1.1.16.tar.bz2.  At this point my inexperience has me 
stopped.  I tried cd to /home/steven/Desktop so I am currently in the 
Desktop directory, but I am confused about what to type in next.  if I 
type in /.configure, I get the response: No such file or directory.  If 
I type in wine-1.1.16.tar.bz2, I get command not found.

My goal is to be able to install e-Sword in the end.  But in Jaunty, I 
have to follow the above instructions, and I am not able to understand 
the instruction.  Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong.  Thanks.

Steven
