  The patch is used to modify the wine source code tree. To apply the patch,
you have to download the source code first, to use the "patch" command to
incorporate it, and, the most important part, to recompile wine from these
patched source codes. To succeed, you have to download various development
tools and packages first. So, it's just a trivial task for a newbie. But,
if you will try and possibly succeed, it's very good feeling to run the code
which you've compiled personally :-).
  With regards, Pavel.
