someone please speak up.

First, use the latest dev version of Wine.

Second, add the "unhide" and "udf" options to your optical drive in
'/etc/fstab', as I show in this example from my Debian Lenny install. The
first two fields may look different on yours.
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,unhide     0       0

Third, use Winetricks to install 'IE6'. You won't be able to accept the EULA
without it.

Reboot, just to be anal about things.

Before you try to install. mount the DVD and see if the files are now
visible. REPEAT, do not try to install here.

Post your result here.
