PlayOnLinux does not find the virtual CD-ROM it creates. If I chose /media/cdrom, or OFFICE14, or even /media, PlayOnLinux continues to display the error "Cannot find cdrom". It has no idea where it is mounted. Please help.

I never used PlayOnLinux but was able to install Office 2007 on Ubuntu through winetricks and the Office CD. I'm currently using the latest wine installed through this PPA:

I also installed wintricks with

apt-get install winetricks

There is an option to install Microsoft Office 2007 Pro. I have a Home and Student edition but it installed just fine with this option.

I had the same problem installing Office 2007. You can start the install manually by choosing "Install a program not listed" this enables you to choose a later wine version instead of going with the default. I was able to install it this way.
