We used wine to get COD2 running on Vista with wined3d and an intel chip 
on a private LAN party. It worked, but I couldn't comment on the 
rendering quality anymore. Well the game is old and I think a normal 
windows user would never try something like this. So using wine at LAN 
parties might be a good idea to get more attention and to arrive new users.
