Follow the instruction which is available at:
You must have DirectDrawRenderer in the registry set to "gdi" (which is the default) for Diablo to work. If you have changed it to "opengl" at any point then the game will crash after the Blizzard logos.
for your convenience here is a reg file that will change it for you:
just copy the date NOT including the dashed lines to DDrawRender.reg and then use
wine regedit DDrawRender.reg
to add it to the registry
