I always look for 1-click installs, as manual installations are still
really hard for me, but in that URL there are a few directories (i586,
noarch, repodata, src). The problem is, I don't know which file do I
need to download and from which directory.

Don't worry about what to download, downloading individual packages is
not the way to go unless you really know what you are doing. Just run
the commands malcolm provided. You don't even have to type them, copy
paste! The Wine repository will be added to your system and Wine will be
installed. It will subsequently be kept up to date as part of the normal
software update process.

Alternatively go in to YaST, go in to Software > Software Repositories
and add the a new repository. Then go in to Software > Software
Management search for and install Wine.


For reference:
i586 contains packages that contains compiled for 32bit systems.
noarch contains packages that don't contain binaries and hence can be
used on 32bit or 64bit or PPC or whatever.
src contains packages that contain the source use to build the packages
in i586 and noarch.
repodata contains information which programmes such as YaST and zypper
utilise to know what packages are available in that repository.

Well yeah, I ran those commands and everything worked, but the thing
is, I want to understand how to install basic applications myself.
Asking for help all the time would be troublesome both for you and for
me.

Thanks a lot, now I'll just have to learn how to use that Wine.
