Everything seemed to go well and I now have an icon to launch the game on my desktop, However, when I double-click on it I get a "Serious Error" warning asking me to report the error to the Wine bugs website which I will happily do. I suspect this may have something to do with the DirectX requirements of the game. I'll try something less demanding and see if that works.

Don't bother to report it; it's known bug affecting all the Civ 4 games: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6856

The workaround is to install native msxml3 (some people have also reported needing msxml4). It also needs native d3dx9_28 and d3dx9_36. You can install all this with winetricks. http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks
