Multi Disc Program Installation Problems

    I have been trying for the last week to install a couple of programs that have multiple discs. They install properly only when I choose the typical installation but cannot be installed when I choose complete installation. Considering that I have way more harddrive space than anyone should ever need, I prefer to have my programs completely installed so I don't have to keep reaching for a cd every time I turn around.

    I have only been using Vista for about a month, however I'm still unable to get a complete installation on this OS. Is there a way to get this accomplished, or am I destined to create disk storage on my desk to keep those program discs at hand?

    Any help, links, assistace or kick in pants would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    =============================
    Is it possible that your install disks are
    dirty or damaged? Are you receiving
    errors when you attempt the full install?
    Are the programs compatible with Vista?
