Is your computer also a Pentium 166MHz with 32MB of RAM? ...

No, wait, even THAT can compile wine. Wine wasn't rated for 16MB 
systems, sorry. </sarcasam>

Or in English: You need more RAM. When you run out of RAM, almost all 
UNIXes and clones have a kernel panic. Linux does either that, or it 
starts randomly killing off proccesses (your window manager, X, init, 
and so on) depending on it config at compile time.
Please make sure you have enough swap, you have plenty of RAM (512MB or 
more), all of your toolkit conponets (gcc, binutils, etc.) are up to 
date, and that you don't have faulty hardware.
