    lol, sorry bout the slow reply, i'll use some code to clarify.

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd1.iso
    dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd2.iso
    dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd3.iso
    ok, here you have created 3 CD isos of the three DIFFERENT CDs (if RTCW only has two, only create isos of the two CDs). now do

    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 -o loop cd1.iso /mnt/cdrom
    cd /mnt/cdrom
    wine setup.exe       ##or the equivalent of the setup file
    ok, when you get asked to insert the second CD just do

    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 -o loop cd2.iso /mnt/cdrom
    and just continue the installation. if prompted for CD1 again, first try

    Code:
    umount /dev/cdrom
    if that doesn't work just repeat the mounting of cd1.iso

    one last thing: if you want, i think it's safe to insert the first CD and use that, but after that, everything else MUST be iso files. hope that helps. good luck
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    well, i had the same problem when i tried to install call of duty with wine. the cd drive just wouldnt open and i couldnt put cd2 in.

    the soluttion was:

    when the installer asks for cd2, open a seperate terminal window and type

    Code:
    wine eject x:
    replace x: with the drive you have assigned in winecfg

    the cd tray will eject, place the second cd in the drive and the type

    Code:
    mount /mnt/cdrom
    replace cdrom with the drive you are using.

    now just click ok in the installer window and it should continue the instalation

    Well, I tried easuter's method, when I type "wine eject E:" it says "cannot find eject". The only way I can eject it is to say "eject /media/dvd" and if I do that it won't read disc 2 at all. I havn't tried the iso file thing, I'll try to get to that next weekend, I'm gonna be outta town this week
