There are three things you can do:
1. Copy the entire contents of the CD to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Set the executiable bit anyway. This can be done by changing the parameters for mounting the CD in the fstab file (make a backup in case you mess up.)
3. Force the installation.
Most UNIXy programs will try to write their temporary files to the same location as the installation. Windows programs use whatever is set as %TMP%. That is set through the Windows Environment. I'm certain this is set from within Wine's registry.
