Thanks Ryan. Yes I agree. I think I think it will be better just to
create an installer for each seperate type of Game media. I already
have an idea as to the layout (setup.xml) for the DVD version. So all I
should have to do is add another line in the setup.xml for each
installation CD's for Serious Sam 2 ? Will this also prompt for the CD
change ...etc ? I have also been trying to extract the linux_install.sh
from the UT2004 multi CD game to use as an example but if I run
the ./linux_install.sh --keep --noexec it leaves no data behind to
compare with. These options work fine with other installers, any idea
why ? Thanks again for the example setup.xml :)
