Question homeworld demo in wine

Hey all,

I've been trying to get the homeworld demo working in wine (version 0.9.56) with some weird results. Initially I installed it and it ran fine, but when I went back to play again it would give me a message stating it couldn't find the homeworld CD. I found this perplexing considering it was just the demo version I'd downloaded off the internet. Anyone else run into a similar problem or have an idea of what I might try?

I've set the Windows Version option in winecfg to any number of settings, win98, 95, NT, 2000, XP. Doesn't seem to make any difference.

Thanks in advance Drive safe.
