Hi Christian !

I believe all you need to do is make sure you don't execute the install
program from where the cdrom is mounted.

For example, if you've mounted the cdrom on /cdrom, and the file is install.exe,
do "wine /cdrom/./install.exe" from any location _but_ the /cdrom tree.

Doing it this way, you should be able to unmount /cdrom, insert the other
cdrom, mount it, and continue the install.

works great for me that way.

hope this helps :)
