Has anyone gotten it to install yet? I'm not having much luck here. It seems the installer can't sense the "CD" in the drive, either because of wine or in spite of it. I'll try it out some more later, I guess.
I'm downloading both right now.
That doesn't seem to work. I'm told it's a read-only filesystem, even if I add -o rw to the mount command. Strange. I've found other sites elsewhere that suggest it should install almost automatically. I wonder if I got a corrupted download. ...
You might also have to add the ISO mount point to Wine drives, if you haven't already. The best bet is to burn, if you wish to spare the trouble.
EDIT: Outlining my steps:
1. sudo chmod 777 /dev/loop0
2. Check winecfg drives, add ISO mount point (I also added /dev/loop0 just in case).
3. mount the ISO on the mount point
4. launch seutp

That did the trick; thanks. I wondered why I was having such trouble with a game from 12 years ago. ...
The reason why the installer fails is that the installer tries to directly access the loopback device. With 0660 root/disk, that won't work out very well.
In 1997, a band of developers that would come to be known as Rockstar North and Rockstar Games released the original Grand Theft Auto on an unsuspecting public. The groundbreaking non-linear urban crime game shook up a complacent game industry with its irreverent gameplay, humor and style- and a phenomenon was born.
