Hello Andy,

you need to create a link in the ~/.wine/dosdevices directory to the directory 
where you mount the CDROM in, e.g.

sle at sle3:~> ls -l .wine/dosdevices/
lrwxrwxrwx    1 sle      users          12 2005-11-26 18:36 r: -> /media/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx    1 sle      users          17 2005-11-26 18:36 w: -> /media/dvd

Bye Stefan
