Script editor, resource manager, play testing, normal file operations (i.e. loading/saving), map editing, event editing, and such.
What does not
Menus cause a C000005 (or something) error, which I believe is a null pointer, if memory serves. Also, the database causes a "Unsupported operation attempted" error. Meaning that you cannot edit the tiles, heros, enemies, spells, attacks, or anything. You must use what ships with RPG Maker. This severely cripples the program.

Be aware that this program CAN cause complete system lock-up (requiring a reboot; trying to restart X using CTRL-ALT-BKSP is pointless)
Edit: Thanks to Hanmac for this info!
you can kick the maker with a second display under GDM. (i dont know if it also works with other)
The database can be made to work (partially). once installed run "wine regedit" (without the quotes) from the terminal, and change the value of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Enterbrain\RPGVX\DatabaseIndex to 1. this changes the tab you start on upon opening the database to classes. All database actions except the actors tab are supported. any attempt to use the actor tab will crash the database and require the key to be changed again.
Edit: thanks to Mary Zunder for the basic principal.
