Post How to install program on Asus eeePC Xandros without cd rom?

I downloaded a wine-based program that will let me load a Windows based application. When I run this program it sets up folders, etc.for installing the specific program (wtlib2007). The final prompt states "insert cd in cd drive". This computer doesn't have a cdrom. I burned an iso file of the wtlib2007 cd and copied to my sd card. How do I get the computer to look here when I reach the prompt to "insert cd in cd drive"? As you can tell, I'm not very familiar with linux. Thanks for the help.

You can mount the .iso as if it was a normal CD.
