I bought my copy online though a cheap game CD store. Some relevant information from my CD says:

The game installed, but then required 8-bit color mode to run. I was able to run the game using Xephyr with the following commands:
Xephyr -ac -screen 800x600x8 :1 -cc 2&
DISPLAY=:1 wine CMD32.EXE
What does not
Using the "-cc 2" option in Xephyr produced the best graphical results, but they were still not good enough to play the game. Some text options were unreadable.
What was not tested
Complete game play was not tested. Since the instruction text was impossible to read, it was difficult to try out the puzzles.
Proper 8-bit mode is needed to run. I was unable to get any 8-bit mode working with Xnest. For Xephyr, it seems like if there was a way to tell Wine or Xephyr exactly what color palette Math Detective needed, that the game would work. The sound is a little choppy, but works for the most part.
