Installing games

hey guys
well ive got cedega running, with battlefield 1942.

but the only problem im having, is that i installed BF1942 as root.

and when i try to install it as a normal user, (cedega /mnt/cdrom/Setup.exe) i get an error something like:

"an installation support file - blah blah could not be installed."

it does this about three "bars" into the installation initialisation (the bit with the splash screen)

yet it installs fine as root.

any ideas?

its just i dont really fancy running a game as root

thanks alot

Make sure the user account has "execute" permissions within the CD drive.
