Installing UT2004, can't switch discs during install


Ok, I'm installing UT2004 in Fedora Core 4. I have one dvd drive. The installer tells me to insert disc 2, but I can't unmount disc 1 because the drive is busy. What do I do?

EDIT: I figured out how to get it to let me unmount, so never mind.

Just for future reference, it's often a good idea to explain what you needed to do when you solve a problem yourself. That way, others with the same problem will be able to find out.

Heh, didn't even think about that, here is how it went down:

What I was doing wrong was, instead of just typing 'sh /media/cdrom/linux-installer.sh' I did 'cd /media/cdrom/' and then 'sh linux-installer.sh' This caused me to still be in that directory from my terminal, so the drive was in use.
After typing the former(while not cd'ed into the drive's directory) I could unmount the discs just fine.
