The RPM installed okay for me -- you might want to try "rpm -ivh"
instead of just "rpm -iv" because that shows you a progress-bar made of
hash symbols. It's quite nice feedback of progress whilst installing.

I had the same problem here, even though my RPM seemed to install okay.
I'm on rh8 though. I've used Wine in previous versions successfully, so
I am not sure what's going on now with 20031016 that's giving rise to
this error. I can offer more tests & information if someone is able to
tell me what else I should investigate!

Fingers crossed ;)
