I am currently using wine 9.22 and am getting ready to switch to the 
latest version. If I understand things right I need to remove my current 
wine before installing the new one, but I do not know how to do that.

When I installed 9.22 I was very new to this and couldn't find 
instructions that made sense to me so I followed the directions here:
which had me take the package from a non-official site

So, I can't follow the wineHQ instructions to remove from source since I 
didn't install from source and I can't (that I know of) remove it using 
synaptic or apt-get since it didn't come from ubuntu/deb repositories - 
so how do I go about getting rid of this old version?

(My new install will be following these directions:

Ubuntu Dapper AMD64
