An option might be to do a remaster with remastersys on a lightweight distro like Mint 10 LXDE after you've installed wine on it. I have used a remastersys copy to install to USB before and it worked. The remaster you make boots and works just like a live CD.

Another one I used with wine preinstalled is Kanotix, it is KDE desktop Debian based with ubuntu 2.6.38 kernel, tracking stable repos.
However, you could always install wine by apt-get install wine on terminal, just that it takes a while because wine has a large size.

So each time you reboot you must do it again and that is painful if it is a big program like wine.

I have found the yum solution to work some faster, as you only get the repository info you need and not the complete list of 30000 packages into the apt cache. By the way, apt-get is in the repository of some RPM distros, at least Fedora and Mandriva can use it with their RPM repos.
