I have no idea what this means.  "cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/your_program" didnt' work it said there was no such directory.  I really am at a loss.  :(   "Where "program.exe" should be replaced with the name of main executable file

For installing the wine package, use the synaptic package manager. After 
that, fire up a terminal, go to the place where the installer for the 
program is located (using the command 'cd'), type 'wine program.exe' 
where you replace 'program.exe' with the installer name. You should now 
be able to install your program. After that, go to the place where the 
program was installed, type wine 'program.exe', replacing 'program.exe' 
with the program file. This should run your program
