Nearly everything. No in game glitches or stuff that completely destroys the process. One thing, but that is not really Drakan related. The shortcuts that wine creates don't seem to work for the game. Note: Use patch445 (official patch!) as suggested before, it removes the game's cd protection :) Thanks for the tip guys =) Note2: I use Fedora 8
What does not
Returning to the main menu is a real pain. Response is really slow, it seems that the games FPS go down *a lot* when returning to the menu. You can use quicksave (Q) and quickload (L) to bypass the menu for saving...
What was not tested
Multiplayer. I played this game a long time ago. I don't have a clue how to use multiplayer on this one.
I can only start the game by navigating to: cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Psygnosis/Drakan/ and then clicking the Drakan.exe myself...

Change to the CD-ROM mount directory and run the Autorun.exe from that location. Trying to run it otherwise will result in an error.
Due to a bug in the shortcut creation you may need to terminate the install process before continuing with installing any patches. (Should be fixed as of 0.9.61)
Note that the menu's may not appear properly because of this until the menus are reloaded i.e. at next login.
You should use patch 445 which includes multi-player support and removes the CD check. Once the contents are extracted, run it like any other exe. Currently the CD check used does not work in wine, so to play the game you will need to use this.
The is an in game bug that prevents access of the graphics menu, selecting it will crash the game immediately. Instead, configure the graphics with the menu "Drakan Engine Options" or by running the Drakan executable as follows.
wine "C:\\Program Files\\Psygnosis\\Drakan\\Drakan.exe" -setup
Attempts to redefine the keyboard controls may result in the game hanging. If this occurs, you can work around it by editing the configuration file directly.
vi ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Psygnosis/Drakan/Drakan.cfg
