Install from multiple img files

I want to install several programs: word, WordPerfect and photoshop, each from several img files. I can mount multiple image files though I can’t see how to interrupt the installer and point it at the next image file in the set. Is my only option to create floppies from the img files?

If you mount all the images, usually the installer will take care of "switching" by itself, it will simply continue on to the next until the installation is complete. This has been the case at least for me with any software I've tried this with.

Some installers really want to wait for swapping the floppy disk. Sad
In such case, it may help to copy all files from the involved floppies into one folder and run from there.

The installer (Photoshop 3.0.5) does not see the mounted disk images, I will try to install with all files moved to common folder. Failing that I will just create floppies.

Hm, couldn´t you just mount the CD image and install from that?

Move the CD toast to your Mac´s HDD and mount with: http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/virtual-dvd-romcd-utility

PCA something sounds unfamiliar for Mac, but it works fine.
