What does not
What was not tested
I didn't go in depth with testing but Dreamweaver runs faster than it did on WINE 1.1.6.
Make sure that the Gecko rendering engine is installed before running the CS3 setup. Some of the fonts aren't correct on the installer screen but it is still legible.

Thank rmorgan at http://forums.openaddict.com/viewtopic.php?t=849 for this How To.
I'm using Ubuntu 7.04 Edgy Eft for this, so change these commands to
match up whatever your distro uses to accomplish the same thing.
Warning: Don't steal software. This guide is for users who have a legitimate copy of Dreamweaver installed on their Windows partition. If you don't have Dreamweaver, you can get a copy from Adobe's website here: http://www.adobe.com (we don't get any $$ kickbacks from that).
Ok, on to the steps to get this working!
First, install wine if you haven't already. Like I stated before, I'm using Ubuntu to do this, so apt-get is my choice of software installers. Your distro may be different. Consult your system docs for the correct syntax for your software package management tool.
Note: Make sure you have the latest version of Wine for your distro. The current release can be downloaded here: http://www.winehq.org/site/download
|sudo apt-get install wine|
|cp -R /dev/sda2/Program\ Files/Adobe/* /home/(username)/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Abobe|
|Start --> Run --> "regedit" (Enter)|
|sudo apt-get install recode|
|recode ucs-2..ascii dreamweaver.reg|
|wine regedit dreamweaver.reg|
|cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ Dreamweaver\ CS3/
2015-08-06 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2008 and may not be relevant to current Wine.
Things I had to do in addition to the howto:
1. as previously posted the registry entry is indeed Adobe, not Macromedia.
2. my recode failed: Untranslatable input in step `ISO-10646-UCS-2..ANSI_X3.4-1968'
Solved it by using command recode u2..u8 dreamweaver.reg
This turns it to UTF-8 (instead of ASCII) which the regedit is able to import.
3. Got a catastrophic license failure, which was solved by changing wine to run it as win98.
