I couldn't find a no-CD patch that worked. Just a .COM that wine wouldn't run.
But the good news is that you don't need one! Just run autorun.exe off the CD and tell it play. I set drive D to /mnt/cdrom but I don't know if that's nessisary.
For me, though, the civ2 exe wont run period w/o first running autorun. I applied the patch for it thinking it'd fix it (hey, it did for Civ4!) but I still get the same results. I might try running the COM file on my old Win95 computer and moving the new civ exe over.
