i think this is a problem in how fc6 handels the mounting of the drives.. ie. it mounts the drive as the volume label as apposed to the just /mnt/dvd.

so your first disk will be mounted as /media/heros of might and magic 1 and the second /media/heros of might and magic 2 Or something to that regard.

Wine would be looking at the initial mount point for the data. so...

perhaps you can manually mount the disk to say /mnt/dvd, then unmount it when it asks for the 2nd and mount the 2nd to the same location.??

let us know if that works.

What are you using to run the game?

When I installed World of Warcraft, wine handled the cd swapping perfectly. Also, I second what 3006828 said, try to mount them manually.
