Additional Comments

If you have problems with the startup, look if there is an Problem with the Sound-Server and try another one (so OSS, ALSA etc.). Also there is a problem with the minimap. The discovered area is lighted on the wrong spot on the map. But your Units and buildings are visible, so there is no problem to play.

HowTo / Notes

directX 9

After you installed the game you may get a performance boost if you use the latest version of DirectX 9.

The easiest way to do so, is using winetricks:

winetricks directx9

missing dll
You need the "MSVCR80.dll" file in your .../system32/ directory just google it.
Corrupted textures?

If you have problems with completely corrupted textures the problem might be that your systems lacks a library that is used for texture compression in Dawn of War.

Under Debian based system install the package "libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0" and try again.

Tweaking Graphics
Dawn of War's settings are quite careful chosen which means that you could improve the graphics a lot. Here is a guide on tweaking DoW's graphics which sums it up.
