I don't think so. You do not have an winexplorer as filemanager and as I
know this peace of software is responsible for that. Also it would be a
problem because if you look into the config, wine knows only the device
and the mount point about the device. How should it handle this? There
are ways and patches to linux to automatically mount CDs. This might be
a solution.

Anyway, perhaps someone else can tell us how to execute *.inf files. I
would use the Total Commander for that, but there is no context menu
under wine. I think this is also implemented by the winexplorer under

"Never touch a running system! Never run a touching system?
          Never run a touchy system!!!"
