hi i have a good question for you guy's

i have battlefield vietnam to install on Play_on_linux 3.0.2
the game has 3 cdrom. "Retail Version"
I go to POL, FILE, +INSTALL, i select "install a .POL package or an unsuported application", Manual installation, Forward, Install a program in a new prefix, i typed the name of the folder. the prefix is created, i choose the file to execute that is on my retail cdrom, /media/cdrom0/Setup.exe,
it start to install the game
An MY PROBLEM IS when the installer of the game want to switch for the second cdrom, it can not be ejected because it is use by an other application. probably PlayOnLinux?.

???am i missing something???

i have installed other software an application on Play_on_linux with this method and it work just fine...

Play on linux is a nice project that i will follow.
keep up the good work...

well i found a way out of this small problem....
after i had cancel the insallation of Battlefield vietnam at 50% of the installation.
i went to my /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Battlefield_vietnam/drive_c/Program Files/Battlefield Vietnam
And i COPY my folder of windows BFV in it ....i had it install on my winxp partion.
i cheated your right...
i hent back to PlayOnLinux to edit the wine prefix... and add link to my pol menu

you can use "wine eject (drive):" and that should unmount the drive
