What was not tested
Game works fine on video - sound and input but its necessary remove .con files on subfolder music (very thanks Chris Leone for your .con files tip)
Tested on: Wine 1.5.18, Wine prefix Windows 7, CDEmu for drive installs (Daemon Tools on Linux), AMD A4 3300 2.5Ghz, Asus NVIDIA Geforce GT520 Silent V2 1024MB DDR3 64bit, 8gb (2x4) DDR3 1333, NVIDIA Drivers 310.19, Linux Mint 14 Nadia Mate Desktop 32 Bit Kernel 184.108.40.206 PAE
This driver detect Geforce GT520 how as Geforce 8800GTX but is much better when before detect only Geforce 8400GS and allow change resolution in game without problems
This driver is highly recommended if you have NVIDIA Geforce Card 8000 series and upper versions because give more fps in many pc games titles
Runs perfectly on Dell Inspiron 1525 and Ubuntu Lucid

I have managed to get this running perfectly on a Dell Inspiron running Ubuntu Lucid and the latest dev version of Wine (I did it on a clean install - it will not run with the dinput8 override, directx9, or directmusic installed).
Once the game was installed (which went without a hitch):
I used winetricks to force the mouse warp override (it's near the bottom of the list under MWO)
Went into winecfg, opened the libraries tab, and added dmband,dmscript,dmloader respectively, all set to 'native'
Still in winecfg, clicked on the 'Audio' tab, unchecked 'Alsa' driver, and checked the 'Oss' driver (the Alsa driver won't play any sounds, if you don't want a dead silent game, you need to enable the 'Oss' driver).
Went in to the main U2 directory (home/user_name/.wine/drive_c/Unreal2) and renamed the 'Music' folder to '1Music' (this bit was important for my install; if your machine hasn't got the right sound card, the game willl crash every time on trying to load a new game if this folder isn't renamed - there will be no music in the game as a result but all sounds/voices will work with the Oss driver enabled in winecfg)
Went into the U2 system directory (home/user_name/.wine/drive_c/Unreal2/System), found a file called 'unreal2.ini' (its right next to the Unreal2.exe), opened it up in gedit, set 'StartupFullscreen' to 'true' and then set 'UseVSync' to 'true' (these options can be done through the games options screens but I found it easier to do it all at once in a text editor before trying to load the game)
switched off desktop effects (it won't run properly with compositing enabled on my machine).
