Thanks for that. I will put that in my "hints" repository!
I removed the foreign repo and wine installed correctly.
I don't know why there was a wine in that repository but I
will remember to remove those things from my sources.list in
the future. That will no doubt save me many headaches!

Again, Thanks!!
