Martin & James:
Thanks for your responses guys. Unfortunately, neither solution fixed the problem. I tried both of them, but still got the identical problem.
Oddly, when I actually clicked to begin the installation, the DVD drive spun up, but then the pop-up message again indicates "Disk Not Found"....
HOWEVER, I think I may have found the source of the problem. In checking things out on an actual Win XP box I noticed something VERY odd. When
I explored the DVD with XP, the DVD appears to have 8 hidden folders which do not show up in Linux. Even running `ls -lai` the additional
directories don't appear. When I viewed the DVD with the graphical Nautilus file browser the directories were also not revealed, even though I had the
"Show hidden files" option engaged.
$ ls -lai

Might this mean that WINE is not showing the files to the installer program? If Linux can't see the directories, I'm assuming WINE can't see them
Any idea what is going on here?? How do I get Linux to see the files so that WINE can show them as well?? Thanks...
