[Wine] SecuROM and Wine on Mac OS X

Bah! Okay, so I'm running WINE v1.1.43 on Mac OS X.6.3.

Now, I went and bought myself a copy of Oblivion (Game of the Year Edition), but it's got smelly SecuROM in it, which I understand WINE supports?

However, whenever I try to run one of the "protected" (from customers) programs it complains that there is no disk. The disk however is there alright, and I have a mapping for the D: drive onto /Volumes/OblivionGOTYUK1, but no luck, doesn't seem to realise the disk is there (even though the program is running from it just fine!)

Is there a way to make SecuROM recognise the disk properly?

The really ironic thing is that I did have a "pirated" copy so I could try and see if the game would run acceptably under WINE, and it worked just fine, but now the paid copy doesn't, nice one Bethesda! =/
