I have tried a cracked version of Heroes IV without any expansion packs/updates on a dell inspiron 1501 with fglrx 7.11 and it was working as if I had used it from windows. I did not install it just copied the files and executed it.
What does not
Desktop integration is not perfect, full screen does not hide the taskbar. But if you switch off desktop integration all is very good.
What was not tested
network stuff. I just tried a hotseat game with 2 players and AI opponents.

This game requires a crack to work.
Installing the patches is highly recommended, as they provide fixes for serious bugs in the game (not Wine related).
There are different patches for the different versions of the game
