    In Ubuntu 9.10, go to Applications > Ubuntu Software Center > Get free software
    Enter "Wine" into the searchbox, and then select "Wine Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer" for installation.

    After installation, follow the steps listed in the link given by Let_Me_Be above in order to configure Wine.
