Error run Starcraft in wine

Hello everyone
I want to play starcraft on my FC4 box, and have installed wine already. But when I mount the hard disk partition with brood in it and use "wine starcraft.exe", the system needs the CD,That's Why? I don't want to burn a CD anyway.

Starcraft wants to see the CD to make sure you own the thing. You should not be running proprietary software that you do not own you see... against the law in most places.

So what is wrong - will starcraft not see the CD or something?

BTW: do you have a config file? Which wine did you use (the tarball or the FC3 rpm?)
