Those specs to run Wolfenstein are as about on the low side as I've seen in quite a while:

CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 3.2 GHz or AMD Athlon(TM) 64 3400+ processor

RAM: 1GB RAM

Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA(R) Geforce(R) 6800 GT or ATI Radeon(TM) X800

A Pentium 4? And a Geforce 6800GT? We're talking 5 year-old technology.

I can't imagine getting any sort of decent performance with that hardware setup. They didn't post their recommended specs - I'll bet they're at least double what these are.
