Doing this cannot find the exe, and after investigating it seems wine maps my cd rom to the Z drive?



fails, but typing

wine Z:/cdrom/SETUP.EXE

works fine.  (also, dunno if it's significant, but I have to use forward slashes instead of backslashes.)

I am using Linux Mint Elyssa, and I installed Wine from the mint repositories, but then followed the instructions  on this page 


for Ubuntu to upgrade to the latest version.  (Mint's packages only go to 1.0)
