Installation. Game partially.
What does not
Sound. Two mouse cursors are shown; the ubuntu cursor and the game cursor. The ubuntu cursor speed is right but the game cursor speed decreases as the window resolution increases, so it's quite uncomfortable playing in HI-RES mode.
What was not tested
Network game (it uses IPX. with Windows XP I wasn't able to get it working).
