How could I install from the cd, if the cdrom wasn't mounted?

Oh dude sorry didn't mean for it to sound blunt, no ofense was taken was just pointing out that was loading cd's fine...I did figure the problem out though....FYI for anyone else very nice to know....

Mandrake 9.1 you have to actually turn off supermount for this install, or atleast for Sony Vaio PCG-GRZ610 laptop, simple, go into terminal, log in as root, do supermount -i disable
install unreal
then do supermount -i enable
back to normal

I really I really have to get Mandrake 9.1 a big hands up, this is 1st Linux distro to install right off cd on this laptop flawlessly and everything work 99% right off the back.

I believe it was ut2k3 where the CDs were different from what they said when you isntalled in linux. Try another CD. I first had issues with it trying to mount my floppy, I also remember, since I don't have a floppy drive, I had to remove it from my fstab. Those are the only problems I can remember.

For quake 3 you had to download the installer to install off of the win disc, the installer for ut2k3 is on disc 3...so it is the same idea...is that what you mean?

Mandrake 9.1 + Ut2k3 = no go

I'm having the same problem. I've *tried* to disable supermount and it didn't seem to help. I say "tried" because I'm not even sure if I did it right. As an utterly helpless linux newbie - I have no clue what I'm doing, however I can follow instructions. (I did get the nForce platform driver & geforce video drivers working - which has really just resulted in my computer becoming a very expensive tux racer box) If someone could please just tell me exactly what to do to make Unreal Tournament 2003 work under mandrake 9.1 I'd be most apperciative.

For UT2003+Mdk9.1 I found I had to commend out all entries in fstab which were for my cd drives and floppy drive, and I commented out the ones for my windows and other linux install partitions too.
Then I found you mustnt cd (change directory) to where the installer is on the cd, or you cant unmount the cdrom to change disks.
I had one terminal window issue the mount command, and a second issue /mnt/cdrom/installer_file, and then when I had to change disk, I used the first terminal to umount the cd and mount the new one.
man mount and man umount to check the correct syntax.

Sadly UT2003's OpenGL engine isnt as good as its DirectX one.
