Cedega - http://www.transgaming.com - runs Steam (and CSS) flawlessly. It costs a tiny bit a month, but it is worth it.

I know what you mean, no free trial. I think they are taking advantage of Linux lacking in the DirectX department, I don't use them, personally, but I have run Guild Wars and CSS on it and it works nice.

linuX-gamers.net put together a nice tutorial you might find quite helpful, you can grab it here.

Cheers!

EDIT: That is a free tutorial using wine.

Cedega has a CVS version, that can be downloaded and used for free. Follow this tutorial to get it to work.

http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...p?articleid=45

Also there is a frontend gui that you can use for it named Grapevine.

Keep in mind that using the CVS version requires more work on the install and it will not come with some of the things available in the paid version of Cedega that makes it easy to use, one being precompiled packeges i.e. rpm, deb.
