Use double hyphen:  yum --enablerepo=rpmforge install wine

FYI the convention is that single letter options take a single hyphen
( -d ) but that longer option names have a double hyphen ( --debug ).

Some programs break this convention, e.g. find, java and javac , so get
in the habit of reading the manpage or trying the help option, which
will be one of -?, -h, --help or -help, before yelling.
