I was just about to ask the same question (glad I searched first - ). It is the single only thing I need Windows for anymore. If someone has found a way to make my addiction (AOE2 and AOM) work in Linux please help us out..

wines application database says that AOE II works well under 0.9.52 (which is, as of today, the latest version), including copy protection, so you shouldn't need a cd-patch.
