Installation, game intro, game menu & settings changing, built-in units reference, gameplay - everything works.
What does not
Sound effects don't work - unfortunately this ruins gameplay since you can't hear pings, sonar etc. (in-game music works); tested with oss wine sound driver.
The problem with sound effects is probably manifested by the following error messages:
fixme:dsound:IDirectSoundBufferImpl_SetFX (0x30888f0,0,(nil),(nil)): stub
What was not tested
Only basic gameplay was tested (single and quick missions). Campaigns and Multiplayer were not tested.
If you have 2 CDs release, you may need to copy both CDs to a temporary location first and install the game from there, in order to avoid disc swapping problems. If you see a garbled or blank screen after starting the game, just click left mouse button - you will see intro movie and the game will run fine. Other than that, you may need to kill wine if installer hangs when finishing installation.
