What was not tested
Using a virtual desktop is likely a good idea, as the game defaults to 800x600 resolution. The only quirk is the game executable (c3.exe) tends to not launch when called directly by Application Menu shortcuts (at least under KDE 4.1) - one workaround is to create a simple shell script inside the game folder like this... #! /bin/sh wine c3.exe ...and make the menu shortcut point to said script (after doing chmod u+x on the script, naturally).

To install simply run the installation as follows:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n" wine d:setup.exe
Note: Replace d: with your CD-ROM drive, but be sure that you have it in the form of a drive letter otherwise when you run the application it will not be able to find the CD. So go winecfg and click on drives to get the set up properly.
Running the game:
Once setup has been run and CaesarIII is installed you can run it by simply typing:
Note: This assumes that you are in the terminal and already in the directory that CaesarIII is installed (for example: .wine/drive_c/Caesar3/)
