Everything works fine for me as of wine 0.9.52. The application starts, safedisc now works and the menus appear as they should.
What does not
I was able to play the game without any hiccups.
What was not tested
Multiplayer was not tested.

To get multiplayer working you have to use by now the directplay libraries from microsoft, still (since 2006) no open source libraries for direct play that include libraries to open sockets and close to play games, so install winetricks:
(in ubuntu/debian) sudo apt-get install winetricks
and then exec:
It will download the directplay libraries from microsoft and install them, that's all, tcp/ip will work with direct connect.
