Simple steps to install and run Starcraft on an Archlinux AMD64 system:

Install and config Wine:

  1. Install yaourt from AUR
  2. Install lib32-win by running: $yaourt -S lib32-wine
  3. Run winecfg
  4. On the drives tab, click Autodetect
  5. Click "Show Advanced"
  6. Select the drive letter representning your optical drive
  7. Change type to CD-ROM
  8. On the Audio tab, I had to click OSS Driver (instead of Alsa) and check "Driver Emulation"

Install Starcraft:

  1. mount starcraft disc ($mount /media/dvd)
  2. cd /media/dvd
  3. wine install.exe (install as you normally would)

At this point the game should run fine. My starcraft disc installs an older version which only supports IPX networking. I downloaded the latest patch from blizzard and ran it using wine. It patched Starcraft to allow TCP networking, which worked flawlessly.
