Wine has not been updated for the latest beta (Phoebe), and it's not in 
Rawhide anymore. I think it has to do with a change to glibc-2.3 and a 
patch to the kernel (that same issue was discussed here, and affects 
Debian unstable or testing I think).

Or (shamelessly plugging myself), you can install the RPMs I maintain 
for RH8.0 at They're 
based on RedHat latest (20020605), so the upgrade should go pretty smoothly.
