I'm not sure if you can actually play it from a mounted Windows partition, though I'm not 100% sure :)

so answer my question or you can tell me step by step how to play it in wine.I'll assume that this only came across as a demand and that you honestly did not intend it that way. The answer to your question is located here: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=1554

I've never used it, but the WineHQ database says it is "gold" and give instruction on how to get it running.

you need to move your steam folder over to your .Wine folder on your linux partition i am pretty sure it goes in /c_drive/program files

don't quote me on that though.

Actually i think you would be better off just installing it through wine fresh following one of the many Steam tutorials.

I'm inclined to agree with madsmeg, and say follow one of (the many) tutorials on installing steam on the forums :)
