    Cant install return to castle Wolfenstien! Any ideas?


    I bought RTCW hoping to get it working on linux. So far i cant get it to install the game through wine, or winex! WTF! Isn't supposed to be installed in order to get the sp_pak3.whatever files? It gets halfway through the installation, then it says "please insert cd 2" i can't umount that gay piece of ****!!! Can someone help me get my RTCW installed so i can be happy that i spent a good 20 dollars on a good game. Just to let you know i got the "platimum pack" version, i couldnt find, if ther even is one, the original game. It comes in 2 cds, and i use RHLinux9 with Radeon 9600.

    All you have to do is copy the first CD to a dir and define that as a CD drive in your winex.conf. Then, you can run the install from that dir and redirect the installer to look for the 2nd CD where it is mounted.
