The game proper starts
(I used a no-cd patch to play)
What does not
Driving, using keyboard or keyboard + mouse.
Specifically, using the keyboard to control movement causes problems, as most keystrokes are accompanied by a pause--as if you're hitting, say, "W" and "Pause" in tandem, whereas you're just pushing "W." Since "W" is the accelerator key, this means you move in fits and starts and as soon as you let off the key the game pauses. Also, once you're paused in this way, it's very difficult to get any other key to work properly, so even quitting the game becomes a pain. This happens even if you remap the "W" key or use the up arrow. (I've tried fiddling with the config files a little--e.g. to disable "Pause"--but so far I've had no luck.
Using the joystick works much better and makes the game playable, however there are only a few functions mapped to the joystick, so it doesn't completely eliminate the keyboard problem.
What was not tested
I believe I tested everything. Long-term play seems to work, as I delivered two loads of goods successfully.
It's a shame I'm having these control issues, as this is a pretty cool game, especially for sheltered Americans like me who have never been to the continent. For the record, I am using a Saitek Eclipse II USB keyboard and a Microsoft Sidewinder 2 joystick.
