Everything works perfectly.
The game runs very well in D3D. but runs better in OpenGL. Add the -opengl switch when running the game.
What does not
What was not tested
The game suffered rough mouse movements from the mouse center bug #1410 in earlier versions of wine, this is problem doesn't appear in wine 0.9.18. Also for those curious as to why run the windows version when there's a native port, the windows version performs faster then the native linux version. At least for me. ;)

I found that I had to make these changes to get the game to work in full-screen mode. Once these changes were made it worked perfectly all the time.
In the registry set the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/DirectInput/MouseWarpOverride = force
In winecfg add checkmarks to the following checkboxes:
Allow DirectX apps to stop the mouse leaving their window
Emulate a virtual desktop (enter your screens native resolution)
In UT2004/System/UT2004.ini in the [Engine.Engine] section:
Comment out your old RenderDevice
In UT2004/System/UT2004.ini in the [WinDrv.WindowsClient] section:
Set your WindowedViewport to your native resolution
Set your FullscreenViewport to your native resolution
Set your MenuViewport to your native resolution
