Is what?  Anyways, I personally like RPMs but in the case of wine, I had 
much better luck after compiling from source (which is not as hard as it 
sounds)  Basically you want to download the new version from CVS 
(instructions are on the winehq website) then unzip and read the README file 
which tells you how to compile the code(which mostly consists of running 
~/wine/tools/wineinstall or ./configure, make, make install)

I wouldn't recommend it, although madrake is based off of redhat 5.0 there 
have been a number of significant changes since that would probably cause 
your install to be less than stable.
