Hi, there,

I am just a beginner. So my question is very basic. 

I have downloaded Wine-20040213.tar.gz and extract the downloaded file by 
using the command "tar zxvf Wine-20040213.tar.gz". According to the 
instruction on the page, I entered the 
new directory and typed "./tools/wineinstall". 

After some time, I met the question "Performing 'make install' as root to 
install binaries, enter root password: ". What is that? I think the Howto 
page doesn't mention we need to provide any password.

Could you please tell me the answer? Thanks.
