Question How can I change Link targets?


I have Wine linking to /dev/hda instead of to /media/cdrom0, no matter what I put into the configuration, it always links to /dev/hda.
Because of this, I can't run installed programs that require files from the CD to run (ie: Starcraft).

Is there a way for me to change the Link target of the simulated CD drive in wine to go to my CD drive, instead of /dev/hda?

Thanks in advance.

Heh, same here. It's easy. Just mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom (or wherever) and then run wine /mnt/cdrom/Setup.exe
