Installation of game and QuickTime (required by the game) with wine set to appear as Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 (which will install either 16-bit version in the former case, or the 32-bit bit in the latter).
Starting a new game (if you use 8bpp video mode, e.g. by using vnc)
A bit of gameplay.
What does not
The game freezes and/or crashes frequently.
You must use 8bpp color (either by setting your desktop to 8bpp or using vnc with
'-cc3 -depth 8')
Colors are quite messed up; Windows 3.1 version is entirely greyscale, while 95 version has some color, but is still mostly shades of grey.
Sound often doesn't work.
What was not tested
Watching in-game video clips

I was able to play Myst fairly well using the git revision from 20070624.
In order to install Myst, you will need to run winecfg and set the Operating System to Windows 95. You can do this either globally or per-exe (which is what I'd recommend) by clicking "Add Application." You'll want to make sure that the installer.exe on the Myst CD is set to Windows 95.
Run the installer with WINE and install Myst and quicktime. Both of these installers ran perfectly for me.
If you are doing a per-exe Windows 95 configuration, then you'll have to set myst.exe to use Windows 95 in winecfg. Otherwise, myst.exe may crash saying, "Myst was designed for Windows 95. You are running Windows NT." depending on what you have for your global settings.
Now, you can run myst.exe :)
