RE: Installation cannot be completed

first, I have to state I've got experience only with BFME DVD editions which work without problems.
1. Were you able to eject the CD #1 and insert the CD#2 in the same drive?
2. If you were able to physically change the media in the same drive and setup program did not recognize the CD, then it's a bug to be filed against Wine.
3. Please note that Wine itself does not mount CD media if they're present in CD drive. Mounting the media so their contents is visible is to be done at operating system /desktop level.
a) Try unmounting/ejecting and inserting/mounting the second CD from your desktop environment.
b) Use .iso images instead of real CD media. I've used this for Wizardry 8 and it works.
You can create an iso in command line via following command, where /dev/cdrom is path to your CD device:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=~/Desktop/bfme-01.iso
You can mount the .iso images to system via command:
sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 ~/Desktop/bfme-01.iso /media/cdrom
(Mounting is similar to insert media.)
c) Try running wineboot after changing CDs (not really sure if this will help).
