if wine is setup correctly
put disk in drive
mount disk
cd to disk
wine setup.exe

sometimes when you run wine setup you need access to two hard drives like on a network to change through the pile of disks.

Wine is a project that provides alternatives to Windows libraries. Normally, programs use functions that are built into Windows or parts of it (e.g. DirectX). These aren't generally available in Linux, but when you run wine and pass in the name of the program, it tries to run that program, translating the Windows calls into ones Linux understands. (At least, that's how I think of it, it's probably not technically accurate).

You don't have to have Windows at all, since wine aims to be a Windows replacement. Besides, you wouldn't be running CS in Linux if you were booted into Windows!
