Run 'wine regedit', browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine. If there is no key (the stuff with folder icons) called AppDefaults, then create it
Right-click on that key and create a new key game.exe
Create a new subkey Direct3D. In that key create two string variables:
DirectDrawRenderer with value opengl RenderTargetLockMode with value readtex
General instructions, with or without opengl
Press cancel when the installer wants to update system files
To avoid copy protection issues (in my experience it did not work even on Windows 98SE, just 95), upgrade to the latest version
If you are not using the opengl mode as described above, after saving a game, the menu becomes invisible, but it appears for a
second or so first, so it is easy to find the resume mission button.
the menu appears again if you ALT+TAB out of the game and back
In order to play network games, IPX will have to be enabled in the
kernel, and you need some userspace utilities, usually called
ipx-utils; and IPX must be started (there should be an initscript).
Also note that Tiberian Sun's network support is only available when it is
run as root

I have followed the instructions to change the registry, updated using the given link on to the 2.03 version and have successfully patched the game. I am now able to open the game without error. At first screen it tells me that I require a CD. I checked my registry and it points at the install. However it still gives me the please insert CD message. I am currently using Wine 1.2.2 This is the free downloaded full version from the www.commandandconquer.com/classic hosted by the company that made it as a way to advertise for the new C&C 4. Thus there is no CD available though it is an entirely legal copy.

crash after a few minutes

i downloaded the game from the official ea-website, unzipped etc.
it runs quite well in the menu, but crashes reproduceable in the first mission of the gdi, as soon as the player gets control (one time out of 3 tries it didnt crash for around 10 seconds)
i get following in the console:
