Problem:
When the install gets to

INSTALLDIRspDx9.dll

I get the following error message

Feature Transfer Error
Error:-1603 Fatal error during installation
Consult Windows Installer Help (Msi.chm) or MSDN for information

What I've tried:
Mounting actual CD
Coping CD files to hard drive
Copying the CD ISO image to disk and mounting that
Since I though maybe the problem was with my discs I borrowed a friends and I got the same error at the same point
All of above tried with wine 1.2 and 1.3 (with 1.3 the error occurs immediately)

Everything I've tried results in the same error. Not sure what to do. According to the Wine database I should have no problems. This is the original 3 disc release.
