    Thumbs down Re: [TUTORIAL]How to install Dungeon Siege II

    Hi;

    Can't get past first disk.

    Did the "wine eject", which ejected CD #1. CD #2 wouldn't mount, tried many things including pmount. After several minutes, I popped out CD 2 and popped it back in, it then automatically mounted. However, the installer wouldn't recognize it. I tried going through the Wine explorer to the setup file on wine "c" drive, got a popup window asking for disk 2 - also not recognizing disk in drive.

    Help?

    Re: [TUTORIAL]How to install Dungeon Siege II

    In the first cd, after you put the serial, it displays the message, pidgen.dll not available, check if cd1 is inserted, and yes, its inserted and with the dll, if I put the dll on wine (we are talking about wine 1.2.1 and maverick) it closes with an error message, anyone know how to fix it?.

    Thanks.
