What works

Everything - mouse, movies, sound, dancing, fencing, sword fighting, sneaking into towns, sea battles etc

What does not

The install didn't work until I tried this:

wineconsole cmd
e:
setup.exe
eject e:

Furthermore, the install did not copy the game file "pirates.exe" over into the game folder, so I downloaded the nocd-crack pirates!.exe and copied it into the game folder.
