In console type sh winetricks

install the following

vcrun2005 sp1

Step 3

Install steam
Run fm2009 installation

Once game is install select Launch game and activate via steam

You do not need to have steam running to play fm
just browse to wine directory program files/steam/steamapps, you will find fm.exe, select fm.exe and you will be able to play the game without steam running

That will be helpful. I might try that to be honest. Although there may be little point since I am on a dual boot system so can just use Windows like I currently do. Still nice to know the option is there though. :D
