Most things. Here's how:
If you want to play the game in a small window, then it's necessary to enable the "Emulate a virtual desktop" option under the "Graphics" tab of winecfg.
If you want to play the game fullscreen, that you've to ensure that the "Emulate a virtual desktop" option is turned OFF, and you'll also need to see that "Allow the window manager to manage created windows" is turned OFF, using winecfg.
What does not
The installer. The installer that comes with the disks is very problematic, and can easily be replaced by the one found here.
The menus are a little slow to load (especially the in game pause menu), but they load.
What was not tested
Anything past the first two levels.

It is recommend to use Wine 1.8
1. To enable movie playing, you need to install additional libraries:
$ winetricks amstream quartz dsound
2. Pressing the ESC button during play to get the menu the game is not shown full screen anymore. To fix that I changed a few settings in the Wine configuration (tab Graphics) - Enabled: Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows Allow the window manager to decorate the windows - Disabled: Allow the window manager to control the windows
Emulate a virtual desktop (is default)
