Installer works when the steps outlined in my comments are taken.
The SecuRom (7000) copy protection works fine with the retail CDs.
The game does begin to load up, you can get to the first screen.
What does not
Launching the game works, as it gets to the first screen, the game then crashes.
Possibly in game movies, cannot confirm yet.
What was not tested
Running the game itself
In order to get as far as I did the following was needed: When installing the game, it will ask for CDROM 2, however the cdrom drive is locked. To open the CDROM drive, open a console window and type: wine eject d: where d: is your CD-ROM drive letter. You will need to do this after each CD-ROM. Next, you must open a terminal window and type: wine regedit Once in the registry editor, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Then click on System Then right click and add a new key. Then name the key MountedDevices Now close the registry editor. These 2 steps fix the SecuRom and Installer problems. However, more problems remain: Without digging too deep it looks like there may be a problem playing the games' intro movies, though I cannot confirm that.
