The game starts (minus the introduction.)
The game is very slow (this could be due to my video card, however it works great in Windows. I also turned all detail levels to minimal including using black & white mouse).
Single Player tested by selecting a new map, and ending turn and moving units.
What does not
CD identification failed on startup due to time, had to use a crack in order to play.
What was not tested
Campaign, Multi-player, PBEM
I had to use sound emulation, another thing that may have caused the problem as well.

Network Play can be fixed using one of two methods:
1) Install Microsoft DX9 using the winetricks script.
The game seems to require registry entries created by the DX9 installer in order to initialize network play.
2) Install native directplay dlls
Set the overrides for these using wineconfig, but make sure to set them up in the global container, not for the game itself.
Register all the dlls using the command regsvr32 dllnamehere
Hosting a game seems not to work, however you should be able to join a network game.
