Installing worked fine. So did patching and playing. msvcp60.dll is needed however.
What does not
Attempting to rebind the controls through the GUI causes the game to freeze. Other than that, I haven't encountered any other freezes, but that may just be dumb luck.
What was not tested
I haven't played through much of the game yet, but so far, very promising.
I was using Morrowind Code Project and Morrowind Patch Project. I don't think that's likely to change the outcome though. I use OSS for sound output. winetricks mfc42 is needed to play, or just copy msvcp60.dll to where the morrowind EXE is. Either way works. winetricks directx9 (not d3dx9!) was _not_ needed in my case. I think that's only necessary if Wine wasn't built with libmpg123 support.

About windows getting minimized, the workaround is pretty simple : the MenuStates of the .ini file is reset everytime you launch the game, which causes it to define minimized windows. What you need to do is chmod it to read-only (chmod 444 does the trick) after having changed the MenuStates parameters to suitable window sizes.
I got it to work with around 50 mods, the thing is the .ini file needs to update the modlist, so you first need to run Morrowind with a writable .ini file (chmod 644 works like a charm), then you can kill the process immediately afterwards (wineserver -k after Ctrl+Alt+F1 for instance), chmod the .ini to 444 after checking the MenuStates section is still well and about, and launch the game !
