You should use Winecfg for this.  Just map D: to the mount point for your CD media.  On single drive systems (that is one CD drive), this should be /media/cdrom.  For systems with multiple CD drives, this could be /media/cdrom0 or /media/cdrom1.  The only way to tell is to navigate in Linux to the drive and look.

This should not change between subversions.  It might have changed between 8.x and 9.x.  This would be unusual.

You have to symlink the fonts directory on Linux into the fonts directory in your user Wine space.  I would give an example, but it might be more confusing than helpful.

Also, you may have to use winetricks to install corefonts, as most Linux distributions do not come with Microsoft supplied fonts.
