Are you on 32-bit or 64-bit?

Downloaded wine-1.6.2.tar.bz2; using thunar, extract here (bzipped tar).  Cd to wine-1.6.2 and opened terminal entered the command ./tools/wineinstall.  after nearly one and a half hour, it asked for root password to install.  Another, shorter wait.  When I opened sol.exe, I was informed that wine was missing something but offered to install it.  While still downloading Sol opened and could be played.  It is still downloading and installing as I post this
