What was not tested
Game works fine on video - sound and input
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

Well first you install BF2 out of the dvd and you run it in terminal by using
wine /PATH_TO_THE_GAME/LaunchBFII.exe (IF UR GAME LAUNCHES WITHOUT ANY PROBS AND JUST THE SOUND DISABLED DONT DO THE FOLLOWING STEPS)
and look for any fixme errors i got three one about displayDevices, another about clipping the mouse and THE MOST IMPORTANT one was about alsa mixer MPU-401 MIDI i had found that key in the registry and deleted it (it disabled the sound in all games, oh foolish me i didnt make a back-up). Deleting that key enabled me to run the game without it crashing at startup. RUN THE GAME FROM LAUNCHER OTHERWISE IT WONT WORK (cause the launcher has to ask you if you want to continue with no sound cause i got it disabled.
I assume if you loaded a native dsound.dll to wine's system32, you would get the sound working without removing the keys from registry. Although i couldnot test it cause i cannot retrieve my registry key :'(
