presumably you'll have to mount the second cd...

Some distros use dynamic mount points based on the cd which is a pain

When I installed it on FC5 I had to create a folder in my home directory and then copy all the contents of the cds there. I used it as the buffer and it installed right away and quickly since i didn't need to switch cds out. Is there a way you could try that?

I sorted it out in the end - there are 2 dlls required, but I didn't read that I had to use the DLL override - once I had done that it worked fine!
