Do a custom launch action maybe..
after normal setup completes.....
have it run your exe or whatever from the CD to install.
You can find that in online help Custom Launch Action I think.
I have done one simple one.
You can do very complex custom install things that inherit some classes but
mine just called an exe that I placed on the cd in addition to other files.
