Install is fine. Sometimes, randomly, it will launch. and even less frequently, the sound will work. It is possible to select the openGL renderer but only at 16bit. Also, for the software to launch, virtual desktop must be set at 640x480.
What does not
Any 32bit gfx, resolutions other than 640x480, often the whole thing...
What was not tested
Multi player, I only ever got into one mission, so not too much game play either. Also didn't try the D3D renderer
Since the install works, you have access to the files... check out the SDL port as an alternative for playing on linux...
