What do you mean, install a cd? What's on the cd and what are you trying to install? Linux doesn't have this autorun like Windows. Linux isn't Windows!

um, sorry to say but unreal tounament won't run on linux. I'm a personal fan of the game and if your as hardcore as i am you might want to consider dual booting or go back to windows. you could always get a windows emulator if your box is powerful enough. but if not, i'm afriad it won't run on linux. sorry bud.

You will have to use something like wine or winex to get it install. Native Windows applications don't work on Linux or Unix systems, only thru emulators or wine.
