What does not
What was not tested
I installed the game from the First Decade Set. No problems here. Also i installed the Command & Conquer: The First Decade – Unofficial Patch - This adds the Patch set from Nyerguds to the game and makes it compatible with new PCs and resolutions (dll overrides etc). You need not to change anything in your winecfg except set Win2000 as os. Get the First decade patch here: http://www.cncnz.com/hosted-projects/command-patch/the-first-decade-unofficial-patch/

Also remember to add ddraw to dll overrides to get it loading, virtual desktop also recommended.
It is highly recommended you install Nyerguds' v1.06c version that includes bug fixes, new features, cnc-ddraw and CnCNet:
Regardless what version you install, remember to add ddraw to dll overrides as it will improve rendering performance a lot if ddraw.dll is included or installed by hand.
The game does not run correctly on SMP PCs (more than one CPU core or HyperThreading enabled); HyperThreading can be disabled in the BIOS setup.

As mentioned in bug 4487, an alternative workaround to freezes on multi-processor systems is to restrict the wine process to a single CPU, as in:
schedtool -a 0x2 -e wine C&C95.EXE
