Game Support: UT2K3 and WarCraft III

Trying to install two games:
UT2K3 (linux version)
WarCraft III via WineX 3

When I mount /mnt/cdrom and execute winex3 /mnt/cdrom/install.exe
the install seems to go fine and then it complains about not being able to find a (mac)BNet.html?

Second problem is with UT2K3 ... I copy the installer from the 3rd cdrom, put the first cdrom in, execute the installer and then the installer tries to access /dev/fd0?? why is it looking at the floppy?

Any help would be appreciated...

P.S. the system is LFS 4.0 w/ P4 and ATI Radeon 9700 Pro.

For UT2003, just execute the installer strait from the third disc. (as root). You dont have to copy it anywhere.

The disc labels are screwed up. So when it asks you for the next disc, just try the other 2 to and see which one works.

no dice... still says
/dev/fd0: Not a valid block device
No medium found

ok, no I got it to see /dev/hdc... but here's what happens...
I run from the CD, it asks for the next one, I insert the next CD...
it says:
Mounting /dev/hdc
No medium found
Unmounting /dev/hdc

what the F*$#!
