Well... The game generally works. You can play - see the pictures, answer the questions, navigate through the menu.
What does not
1)Sound. At all. The game has rather good voices and music, but i didn't manage to get them on linux. The game says about "No DirectSound support"
[Under windows_2000 the game gives another error messagebox telling that the system doesn't support ADPCM, but the sound is present]
2)The game is slow. Although it's absolutely playable on Core2Duo 7100 (1,86Ghz). It "eats" about 90% CPU. (for windows Pentium 2 is enough). The "fast skippng" is not actually "fast".
3)Movies. Although there are only two of them - logos of the developers - they don't play. Error is "The movie cannot be formatted"
What was not tested
Good game. Lots of fun.

Actually it was fairly simple. You use winetricks to install ffdshow. This installs necessary codecs for the movies to play. You also have to use native quartz.dll.
Yes, really. The game runs smoothly with wine patched with DIB Engine and WINEDIB=on.
Fast skipping finally becomes _really_fast. No slowdowns in the options menu. Great.
