The game installs fine, but I cannot make it work under Linux (P-IV 2.5 + 1Gb RAM + NVidia 440Go (64Mb) with Ubuntu 9.10 + Wine 1.1.35 + NVidia 96.43.13). The game runs fine in this very same computer under Windows XP, and my computer exceeds by far the game's requirements.

Wine implements DirectX on top of OpenGL and it might be using
features not present on you ancient graphics card (or its drivers...)
to implement some features.

The games has issues (broken menus, not sure if it even runs without
98 compatibility set up...) under Windows XP.... Maybe running it in
Windows 98 mode helps....

Can the game be set for 32-bit color?

I can't remeber if 16 bit color under wine is like 256 colors where
you need to set up the X server properly to run in 16-0bit color....
