I have no idea where you can find old wine binaries - but you can
allways download the wine source and compile wine yourself at
The oldest wine version they have is Wine-20030115.tar.gz so doing this
could solve your problem allright!
Compiling wine yourself is really easy: un-tar the tarball with
tar xzf Wine-*.tar.gz
go into the new directory (named wine-<date>) and type,
This will build the wine program of the version you want.
I think, to be sure, it's a good idea to remove a wine version which is
currently installed - but I don't really know how this is done in redhat;
Compiling takes some time (especially on an older computer) but ofcourse
it only has to be done once;
I hope this helps,
