Actually, you could go to the Wine homepage
and download the newest version, wine 0.9 in .deb format.
It's been tested on Ubuntu Breezy, so it should work(it does for me!).
I believe it works with Sidenet just fine.

Once you download the .debs, you can install them by moving to the
where they are sitting and typing this in the terminal:

Just so you know, you don't have to use Sidenet or any other utility if
you install the .debs,unless you must have IE or something, since Wine
works well out of the box.
