If the above looks like gobbledegook, I strongly suggest you get a Linux
book and read enough of it to understand shell commands. I like the
O'Reilly books: "Linux in a nutshell" is good and the "Linux pocket
guide is cheaper and (probably) terser.

Unlike Windows, you can easily get beneath the clicky, pointy surface of
the desktop but to do so you need at least a basic understanding of the
command shell, the most common commands and how to find out more via the
whatis, apropos and manpages commands and where to find the HOWTOs. The
Linux Documentation Project, http://www.tldp.org/ holds the latest

Problem solving with WINE requires some familiarity with shell commands.
