Having Difficulty Installing Diablo II: LOD Expansion

Hi all,
I've successfully installed Diablo 2 using PlayOnLinux (hooray!) but am now having some trouble installing the LoD expansion.

When I try, I get to the PlayOnLinux window asking me to install the Expansion disc.  I do so (in a USB external CD drive) and click "Next."  I tell it where the CD is mounted and click "Next" again.

Then the window for the installer comes up asking me to 'Please insert the Diablo II CD labelled "Expansion Disc." '

However at this point it never seems to realize that I've already got the disc in the drive.

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with the included Unity desktop
My machine is a Samung N145+ netbook
Using Wine 1.3.2 and PoL 4.2.1

Hope someone can help.  Thanks!

The log file is as follows:

PlayOnLinux debbuging tool (v4.2.1)
Debugging: Diablo II : Lord Of Destruction

1. Copy all the disk data to a folder on your desktop
2. After Diablo II is installed (and runs) go to Configure
3. select your Diablo II virtual drive
4. click Miscellaneous
5. click Run an .exe in the virtual drive
6. navigate to the folder on your desktop
7. open the Setup.exe (or something similar to setup like install.exe, it will be an exe)

that should install the expansion for Diablo II, but there is no guarantee that it will run.
I have successfully installed mods for Unreal Tournament 3 and Half-Life 2, so there is a chance it will work.

By the way, did you install Diablo II from the PlayOnLinux script?

Thanks, I'll give that a shot.
I did indeed install D2 using the PoL script.

Good, at least the game installs and runs. I've had problems with multiple-disk games and always end up copying everything to a folder.

Sounds like you are using a PlayOnLinux script for both Diablo II and the expansion.
Let me know if it doesn't work
