Installation (sort of)
What does not
What was not tested
Couldn't run the game
Work arounds are required even for installation. EGA in Wine is seriously crippled & I don't have much hope for this anytime soon.

run wine D:\SETUP.EXE for Windows installer
use same basic installer options as Leisure Suit Larry 7 to get around buggy Sierra installer
will get can't write to file errors during install, so change permissions & continue on:
.wine/drive_c/SIERRA/SQCOL/SQ2/sq2.bat to read/write
.wine/drive_c/SIERRASIERRA/SQCOL/SQ4/sierra.ini to read/write
DDE fails to install icons or menus (see buglist) - so we have to figure out how to run manually
It appears the link created would run C:/SIERRA/SQCOL/SQ1EGA/SQ1.BAT
so we run wine cmd /c SQ1.BAT
The program displays a cursor and seems to freeze after this point.
