This is an issue not experienced by other users, so I have some hope that it can be solved; I'm just not sure how to do it, though. I hope someone can give me a hint.
> Heroes of Might and Magic II includes the CD music as audio CD tracks. This means that you put the CD in your audio CD player, skip track 1, and listen to the music. However, it also means that my Linux distribution (Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex) mounts the CD as two separate parts: one for data and one for audio.

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II (1997), also has audio tracks along with the data tracks.  Under Windows the cd audio plays fine, but under Wine, I don't think the required functionality is implemented yet.
