I recently bought a CD which needs to run an installation file to run the program.

Is there a way to force ubuntu to assign a drive letter or is there anyother way to work around this problem.

Thanks for the quick responses. Though Wine didn't work, I managed to install a Windows instance using VirtualBox and opened the CD through the Windows session and it worked fine.
