I managed to get Wow installed (on Debian Etch though) by copying all 
the content from the CDs to harddrive - and running the install-program 
from there instead. I think you would be successful using this method on 
an Ubuntu system too. (I had the same problem installing from CD, seems 
to be this way with many program when running wine.)
