I ran into an issue with more recent versions of Ubuntu where the CDROM is always mounted as a new mount point matching the name of the CD. I asked an EE question (id 27398894) and was able to mount the CDROM in such a way that the install would work with a multi CD installation. Now I am unable to play the game. It keeps asking me to install the PLAY DISC when it is already in there. This seems to be some sort of permissions bug... I know the game wants to read some obscure portion of the disk in order to verify that it is the disc it is supposed to be. The current FSTAB mounting line may be the issue... here it is.
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,auto,exec 0 0
Keep in mind, the install programs worked while juggling 4 discs. The mounting is working as expected. I just need to figure out how to make the mount operation compatible with the request to read a non file location on the CD.
