Install and Game. Have not tried LAN/Multiplayer.
What does not
Install is hard to get right. Took a few tries and messing with mounting permissions. Once the setup program sees the iso when it's mounted you should be good.
What was not tested
Make sure to get the new ddraw.dll file and the patch to 1.06 R3+. And make ddraw.dll an override!

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
