In Wine, your /mnt/cdrom is mapped as D: or something (it's specified in Wine configuration file). So if it's the same drive, you should be able to remove disk 1 and insert disk 2. Then, when the second one is mounted, Wine should detect the disk.

you'll want to mount the original CD - run the installation
umount the cd
mount the 2nd one
continue the installation
