Ivan  - your eeepc is running Xandros Linux. That's a Debian-derived distro, descended from Corel Linux. Seems it doesn't have its own wine deb. (nothing in http://ftp://ftp2.xandros.com/src/pool/ ) Here is another (shorter) howto: http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=19958 suggesting you just install the Debian wine package.

In general it's a good plan to try to only use packages from the distro, rather than random ones from all over. You get better consistency and less breakage that way, but you don't have that option without changing your distro.

At some point you might find the limited set of software provided with Xandros annoying, in which case Debian- or ubuntu-ising your eee might prove to be a good plan. No hurry though.
