You could start at Winehq and browse the database. That is where the application
came from.

You can also try Cedega or Cross over office.

I did a little search and did not get much for Madden 2003

thanks for the help. I checked wine's appdatabase and apparently madden 2004 had been successfully engaged. The OS that were used in that instance was mandriva 2008 and SUSE. So I'm hopeful...but don't have a clue yet as to how to get it started.

Hey Flip City;

All you really need to do to get started is put the first disk in and right click on the setup.exe file and choose open with wine.
Hope it works for you.

 Another happy me. Wow. stretch, It installed and played flawlessly. This game which I enjoy alot, and prefer the 2003 version, was really the only reason I kept XP on another HD. This opens up some new horizons for me as far as gaming goes with linux. Unless I was imagining stuff, there seemed to be an ever so slight frame delay, but after a few minutes, it was OK. It probably is the age of the game.
