What works

The installer, the config.exe app. The installer will not let you click through the license agreement because the accept radio and next button stay grayed out, but scrolling to the bottom and pressing enter allowed me through. Scrolling may not even be necessary, but I didn't try that (looking at other's comments now it appears that it's not). I also used the WINEDLLOVERRIDES as listed on Frank's Corner for InstallShield installers. Again based on other's experiences it seems this wasn't necessary. The config.exe app that is installed with it worked once I copied the DLL it complained about not having from an XP installation (probably also available online).

What does not

The game. When starting it crashes with an unhandled exception: page fault on write access etc. etc. It was necessary to select allow pixel shaders in winecfg or the game would exit saying that my video card was not supported. Also, 3 DLL's were needed (msvcp71.dll, msvcr71.dll, d3dx9_25.dll - the latter probably being the cause of the crashing). I copied them from an XP install. Tried every combination of settings I could think of in winecfg but the crashes continued regardless.
