Thoughts on multi CD things

I just received my copy of UnrealI from Tuxgames, and he does
something neat to get the first CD out [the one with the makeself
installer on it] to get the other CD in:
He has a script on the cd, /a la/ setup.sh, but instead looks like:
cp ./unreali-install.run /tmp
Which you then execute with "cd /mnt/cdrom;source ./setup"
It may seem altogether silly, but it's completely shell-agnostic
and does all that complicated moving-stuff-about-stuff for you.
[That's not exactly it - I'm doing it vaguely from memory as I don't
have the CD on hand]
Anyways. Just a couple thoughts on hacks you can use to get around that
annoying can't-eject-CD thing.
