First, the SIGILL "CLI" instruction occurs on (the real) Windows 2000. I can't remember if it occurs on Windows 98, but I was able to fix it on both Windows 2000, and on wine emulating either 2000 or XP by adding a registry value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\New world computing\Heroes of might and magic\1.00 Make a "Music Volume" value under that key, and set it to any integer value (I tried 0 and 1, both worked). Now you no longer get the CLI problem. It will still get to a black screen on wine (even in the real Windows 2000, but not in the real Windows 98), but it can be fixed as well. Run "winecfg", and disable sound completely. Now it works ;-) . The mci problem with "open G: type cdaudio alias cd" is that mci tries to open G: as an MCI device, which is wrong. I tried to hack it (by adding "G:=mcicda.dll" under the "[mci]" section of the system.ini, the warning will go away, but it will still give you a black screen with sound enabled (and you won't hear any music).

2013-05-03 Admin note: the instructions below are very old and may not apply to current Wine. They are being kept here for the benefit of anyone who may wish to test and/or update them.
Do not use Wine 0.9.30 or 0.9.31, as these do not display the game cursor properly. Newer and earlier versions should be fine.
To get the game working, you must do the following (reported by Damjan Jovanovic)
