If you cannot use it with Wine (they have a list of applications known to work) your best bet is to use a virtual machine application like VirtualBox or VMware. You can then install any flavour of winblows then install the autocad application. Have you checked out the open source alternatives to autocad?

If your AutoCAD version is protected by some dongle, then you can have problems when using it with virtual systems, the same for Wine.
