Installer, basic gameplay (Must be set to opengl graphics mode)
What does not
Movies do not play. The movie in the installer plays correctly (albeit at a horrible framerate) so it's probably not a codec problem...
What was not tested
The movies not playing makes the singleplayer campaign nothing more than an exercise in "kill everything that moves and wander around until you find the exit." The movie files play fine in VLC. If somebody knows where to poke the game to make it substitute a different video player, that might work to get it going.

Using winecfg set your Windows Version to Windows 98.
You need to install the game as normal. Patch the game to 1.1 . Then use a nocd patch to remove cdchecks as so far, the game will throw a General Protection Fault if the game trys to run without using a nocd patch. There is a bug for this. The actual cd check works as you can play multiplayer just fine. The nocd patch stops the game from trying to play the movies which crash wine.
*as of RC2 the game works in opengl mode! Feel free to play the the advanced graphics settings.
*I would recommend having wine emulate a desktopsize and not use your whole monitor. On my setup khg got very confused when it went into fullscreen mode. I've had trouble with the curtain blacking out the screen.
**note, I haven't tried very hard to get the standard 1.0 version working as the nocd patch I found didn't work for 1.0
