[Wine] wineinstall permission denied

I need help...

I've tried installing Wine through both the recommended and manual proceedures, and it refuses to install. In the Root Terminal, it says that "it is not recommended to install under root", that I "should switch to a lower level user", and then it aborts; yet it will not install under any other user. And now, when I try

./config and ./tools/wineinstall

it tells me, Cannot install: Permission Denied. There is no documentation available that I can find to tell me why Wine will not install, and I am new to Linux, so I have no clue how to handle this kind of thing...
