Starting the Launcher of the Game
What does not
Runing the Game
What was not tested
It dont runned so i couldnt test a lot of things.
I have a ATI Sapphire HD 3850. Maybe it will work with a Nvidia. Keep in Mind: Gaming with a ATI. Forget it.

Well first you install BF2 out of the dvd and you run it in terminal by using
wine /PATH_TO_THE_GAME/LaunchBFII.exe (IF UR GAME LAUNCHES WITHOUT ANY PROBS AND JUST THE SOUND DISABLED DONT DO THE FOLLOWING STEPS)
and look for any fixme errors i got three one about displayDevices, another about clipping the mouse and THE MOST IMPORTANT one was about alsa mixer MPU-401 MIDI i had found that key in the registry and deleted it (it disabled the sound in all games, oh foolish me i didnt make a back-up). Deleting that key enabled me to run the game without it crashing at startup. RUN THE GAME FROM LAUNCHER OTHERWISE IT WONT WORK (cause the launcher has to ask you if you want to continue with no sound cause i got it disabled.
I assume if you loaded a native dsound.dll to wine's system32, you would get the sound working without removing the keys from registry. Although i couldnot test it cause i cannot retrieve my registry key :'(
