Has anybody had problems installing games or any programs that require 2 or more CDs in FC5? Everytime I try to install an application that requires multiple CDs, when it asks for the second or next CD, I can't eject the CD. It'll either say it's in use by another application, device is busy, or I don't have access privileges. Tried installing both as a normal user and root. Anybody know how to fix this?

I can press the eject button if the CD isn't in use on FC5 and the disk unmounts and pops right out. Of course it's not in the middle of a game install.

It is likely possible (and maybe even allowed by the EULA) to make a copy on the hard drive. Then you could mount the iso loop back or something crazy like that. Or get another CD drive. Or get the DVD version. ;)
