It's not really true that it only works from winefile. It should still
work if you launched setup.exe from, say, Nautilus or some other Linux
file manager. For the most part, users shouldn't need winefile.

And if you did want to launch Wine from a shell, it's usually only the
shell's cwd locking the mount point, not Wine itself, so you could do:

"cd /cdrom; wine setup.exe &; cd /"

or maybe use a subshell, like:

"(cd /cdrom; wine setup.exe &)"
