It sounds like you did not uninstall the original RH version of Wine. It 
might be a bit tricky to uninstall at this point. One possibility is to 
get the RH CD, and do an "rpm -qlp winepackage.rpm" to find out all the 
files it installed, and try deleting them. You likely will end up 
deleteing some files from the current package so you might have to force 
install it again.
