[ut2004] No love with linux installer

Got it figured out. First, for those that were unable to unmount, the
solution is to not cd into your cdrom directory. Instead, run the script
from somewhere else:
Second, the reason mine wasn't detecting the second CD was the installer
is checking for the presence of a file:
My kernel didn't have joliet extensions support, so the filenames were
coming out a bit different. Someone at Atari (or Epic?) ought to be
slapped on the wrist for not putting rockridge extensions on their discs.
The installer also does us the disservice of capturing the mouse so that
you can't easily paste into it (well actually you can, just hold down
shift in xterm) as well as a number of other rather poor design choices.
Overall, pretty dissatisfied with the installation process, fortunately
the game makes up for it. Hopefully they'll hire somebody more clueful
to write the linux installer next time around.
