The Sims 2 has four installation discs. I read this in the faq:

> If program is on multiple CD-ROM disks you don't want to change into cd-rom's directory or you won't be able to remove disk without stoping the installer. First verify that CD-ROM is mapped to a disk drive in winecfg "Drives" tab (ex D: -> /media/cdrom). Then run installer this way:
> Code:
> wine start /unix /media/cdrom/setup.exe

So I did it that way, and yet, when it was time to put in disc two, I got an error saying:

> An application is preventing the volume 'Sims2_1' from being unmounted.

immediately followed by this error message:

> DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
