What works

Running the install program worked fine. The app. works fine after applying some fixes I found.

What does not

Although this is an old version of Dreamweaver it seems to have the same problems as are documented with later versions. I installed it OK but it would not run, hanging on the splash screen.

I followed the installation instructions give here

http://luiscosio.com/how-to-dreamweaver-and-flash-8-running-on-ubuntu-dapper

(basically copy all the files and registry entries from a WIndows install) and it made no difference. I then found this

http://mynewbietips.blogspot.com/2007/03/install-dreamweaver-and-ie6-using-wine.html

which says that the splash screen hangup is because Dreamweaver is trying to scan all available drives. You have to use winecfg to remove all drive mappings except the fake C: drive. As soon as I did this the hung splash screen was freed and Dreamweaver sprang into life.

I suspect that I didn't need to do the "copy folders and registry entries" install. Just running the setup program and removing all the drive mappings would have done the trick.

Additional Comments

This wasn't tested on 0.9.50. It was tested on 0.9.46, but I'm not allowed to enter that. This version is what apt-get installs and I can't be bothered to jump through the hoops needed to upgrade it at the moment.
