Descent 3 1.4eu works almost flawless in Wine. You have to use a nocd crack to get around the copy protection. It's a bit hard to find - aMule is your friend here.
You have to select OpenGL in the setup to run the game!

Additional Comments

I did not use a nocd crack or patch. I tested both the dual-cakebox and the double-jewelbox versions, both eu-german.
