I've managed to install and play monkey island 3 using transgamings wineX ( it works absolutely flawlessly. as for monkey island 4, neitehr the regular wine or wineX is able to run it. they used to be able to -- i remember playing it about 6 months ago in both wineX and regular wine. as for installing it, just choose a custom install and remove all the checks in the checkboxes that are presented. this results in an 8MB install and doesn't require teh changing of discs. but as I say, wine doesn't seema able to run it at the moment. it gives an error "cannot find files"
