Game is not very playable in current state. Works: Watching intro videos (unskippable, delete trick works), main menu, options menu, game graphic renderer, custom quick game start.
What does not
Mouse does not work very well, see comments about MouseWarpOverride modes. Game is displayed in small area at top-left corner. Selected in-game resolution of 1280x1024 (full screen) and I think game main menu uses always 640x480 which causes problems. Going to Options-menu and back fixes it, but that causes game losing focus and it displays KDE taskbar at screen bottom. Videos are unskippable and all typed characters (esc, space bar) are sent to shell terminal instead. "Deleting/renaming videos"-trick works to skip videos. Mission planning room does something weird as I can't move mouse at all.
What was not tested
Installer (copied over from Windows installation), multiplayer, single player story mode.
About MouseWarpOverride: no override = mouse moves in rectangle area in middle of screen, can't use game controls "force" = mouse pulls constantly down during gameplay and as game is displayed in small top-left area, I can't use options-menu to fix it. "force_edge" = mouse movement is O.K., but it stops on 180 degrees borders around player so game is not very playable

In recent enough Wine (>=1.1.3) Vitaliy Margolen has imported the mouse warp workaround. To use it add this registry key:
MouseWarpOverride = force
Note: if your mouse sensitivity is high enough the cursor might jump out of the game window if you move your mouse fast, you could prevent this by using slower speed in X and higher sensitivity in game but you'll lose some accuracy
Intro movies cannot be skipped. Only way to do it is to remove the intro movies permanently or to replace them with empty files (might produce better results). The correspondig files are Videos/Logos.bik and Videos/int/RS_Intro.bik. If you happen to have crashing problems with the intro videos, this also gets you into the menu.
Multiplayer works flawlessly.
Everything above was tested with Wine 1.1.3.
Punkbuster might or might not work. You will be kicked out of Punkbuster enabled servers without patching and can be marked as a cheater, so be careful!
See bug 9685 for more details and patches.
If the framerate is not smooth, try both of these:
wine reg add 'HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D' /v UseGLSL /d disabled
