How do I install Wine in Ubuntu 9.04

Specs: Ubuntu 9.04, AMD Turion TL66 (2x)
I am very new to Ubuntu, very old (over 80) and desperately needing Ubuntu 9.04 (which I have installed completely) BUT I need wine to run a windows program which will NOT run in later versions, so Grub2 is driving me nuts! (It seems I am not the only one who has trouble with Grub2). I have downloaded Wine 1.2.2 and extracted the archive but I am stuck in getting it in my Ubuntu so as to use it to install my windows program. I have been trying to find an equivalent program for Linux but none give me the same possibilities as this windows program. How do I install this Wine or do I have to find an earlier version of wine and where could that be? I have used synaptic before I went over to Ubuntu 10.10 and there is the wine in Synaptic but it is missing in the synaptic which I can use at this moment in Ubuntu 9.04. Please help as I want to leave windows completely.

Ubuntu is already at version 11 & working on version 12. I usually recommend Mint - it's based on Ubuntu but it's much easier for Windows users to get a grasp on. It would help if you'd tell use which Windows apps you want to run, there may be Linux alternatives that are similar.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
