The install and the game.
What does not
Beginning game menus are to dark to read. The letters are almost as dark as the background.
Help menu in the game seems to have some issues.
What was not tested
When installing, the game doesn't detect mplayer ver 5 or above. It does however let you install the game without it.

To prevent installer windows from being hidden, change Wine's settings so that the window manager is not allowed to control Wine applications (can be done with winecfg).
In Wine versions prior to 0.9.17, elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not hidden when Age of Empires II is run in full-screen. This can be fixed by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that windows are allowed to cover it.
If the game does not recognice your CD, use a crack. This may or may not be legal, depending on where you live.
