Additional Comments

To install the game I copyied two cd's to single directory and set this directory to CD-ROM in winecfg (Drives->Show Advanced->Type:CD-ROM). Then I set "Disk=1" in autorun.inf and started AutoRun.exe. If the installer asks for second disk then change "Disk=1" to "Disk=2" in autorun.inf and hit OK. The game is running smooth in 1024x768 with settings maxed out. Sometimes it crashes with no error.
