Wine problem- cannot define drive letters

i am trying to install Diablo 2 LOD on suse 8.1. when i run the installation program, i select full install, enter the cd key and it tells me to insert the "play disk." So i insert the pay disk after struggling just to get the darn thing open and insert the play disk, click ok and nothing happens. (when i insert the "play disk" first, it asks me for the "install disk," the same error occurs) harddrive doesn't spin, nor the cd-rom. i went into the wine setup and tried to edit the drive letter for the cd rom/ dvd rom to letter D and E. they procede to vanish from the drives configuration screen and i am left with no cd rom and no dvd. it is only one drive however, it is configured as two separate devices. i don't understand why this is happening, but it seem that the computer is not a) recognizing the cd-rom, or b) it has having trouble recognizing the ~/ directory as c:\
any help would be appreciated.

and yes i am a newbie
