What works

Everything works.

Installed first dotnet20sp1 using winetricks then 

winetricks dotnet30 ie6 winxp

All setup ran successfully.

I downloaded and ran VMware-viclient.exe under Wine. Setup finished successfully and when I started the application and tried to log in it failed with the following dialog.

VpxClient has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Then I looked on the console and saw this error message:

RAS support is not implemented! Configure program to use LAN connection/winsock instead!

I installed lib32-gnutls library under ArchLinux and then I could login successfully. So far I haven't encountered major issues --- only fonts look a little weird.
