Many package management systems have an option to generate a list of
URLs with files needed to update it / install packages...

Debian stable (with its about 100000 DVD's / CDs) have all packages
available on its CDs / DVDs, but downloading them is a mission

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGet/Offline might help for your
ubuntu issues...

apt-get --print-uris should be able to do this... The exact place to
copy / extract the files you should see on the page linked above / ask
on the Ubuntu forums...

My guess of the process: (You probably want to add the key and
repository to your souces .list, run apt-get --print-uris update to
get URLs for repositories, get it on the offline PC, eun apt-get
--print-uris install wine to get URLs for packes and where to copy
them and the actually install the packages (with apt-get install wine
after the files have been copied to the right place..))

Tip: Ask you distribution for OS related questions... The Wine
community runs several distributions and most of those are not the
same as yours..
