[Wine] Help with uninstall

I'll try to make a long story short.

  Suse 10.0
  Wine 0.9.20 - from RPM

   Have in the past run Winetools - am no longer (I got smart)

I have some funny things happening with my wine installation, for instance, I 
can no longer add Programs with winecfg, plus, only default settings lets me 
select Virtual Desktop.

   I uninstalled Winetools and Wine using the appropriate rpm command (I found 
it on winehq) and deleted the appropriate .wine directories, but feel that 
something in still wrong, like some remnant of wine was left in a directory 

   I'd like to use that RPM command to remove Wine again, but this time, I'd 
like to check everywhere to make sure nothing is left before I re-install - 
can someone tell me all the places that wine puts things?

  Also, obviously, I'm a bit new to linux and am not familiar with compiling 
(I strictly use RPMs) - would compiling wine give me different performance 
than installing RPMs?  I've tried to compile before, and I keep getting 
dependencies errors - I've never actually been able to compile ANYTHING - 
it's like I didn't install a whole section of software from my Suse CDs - any 
advice (even a simple link to a website that can help me) would be much 
appreciated - I hate not knowing things.
