Everything works just as it would in Windows.
What does not
Nothing. The only thing is that some of the sound effects have lower quality than when I played it in Windows. Radio stations and cutscenes are good though.
What was not tested
This game works extremely good. It's one of the few games that work well out of the box.

Admin note: the instructions below are extremely old and may not apply to current Wine. Follow at your own risk.
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).
