The game works... sort of. It plays, but very slowly.
What does not
It seems to work okay, if you can deal with the excruciating slowness...
What was not tested
Managed to finish the first mission.
I'm running an AMD 64-bit dual-core, 6 gigs of RAM, and an ATI Radeon card. Perhaps the slowness has to do with hardware incompatibilities.

Install the game
Configuring Wine for GTA:VC
Make sure the option "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg (tab "Graphics") is activated.
To kill off a running, but not responding, GTA (and any other programs/processes that Wine is running), run "wineserver -k". You may need to log in to a text-only terminal by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F1 (on most distributions).
