I downloaded all the files with version number 1.0.1-1 and stored it in a folder named WineHQ in desktop. However, when I try to run wine-1.0.1-1.el5.i386.rpm using software installer, i'm getting the following error message.

Am a newbie to linux, so please explain the steps to be followed in a simple way.

Have you tried installing the dependencies first?

It's not Wine giving you that message, it's your distro's package manager. If you don't know how to use it, you need to consult your distro's documentation or ask on their support forum.
