"Directory selection"

I have a problem installing linux 9.
i couln't use Cd-Rom installtion so i copied all the three disks to my hard disk to the directory D:\Linux\Disk 1, D:\Linux\Disk 2 and D:\Linux\Disk 3.
I booted setup using a startup disk and chose hard disk.
I selected my partion \dev\hda5.I wrote ...\Linux\disk 1 in the directory and recieved a message "NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY " .
Please tell me how I select my directory?

Filenames are case sensitive and in Linux directories are split using / not \. So I'd try
Linux/Disk 1
