What works

Everything

The game works perfecly. You just have to put cd in the first drive and be sure to mark it as cd-rom in winecfg.

What does not

There are some problems with DirectPlay. 

The only problem is with multiplayer. Here is an instruction on how to make DirectPlay work: http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectPlayGames.

You will also need to install IPX. If for some reason you want/have to play using TCP/IP DirectPlay connection you will encounter one small problem. When on clients side popups a window for entering ip the mouse hangs and you are no longer able to continue.

So you have two options:
1) Set Linux box as server.
2) You may use this program which patches dpwsockx.dll to connect to specific ip without showing the popup.
