I have the ISO mounted and it still tells me to insert the CD, what do I need to do?

Never mind. I took care of it.

A manual would be nice. I need to know how to open locked doors.

I followed Oldschoolracer's instructions, installs fine but doesn't recognize CD in mounted drive while in dosbox.

In case you're running into trouble setting it up because the game keeps asking for the CD-ROM:

* Download the installer package
* Create an ISO9660 image with an authoring software of your choice
* Mount image, then install and play in DOSBox as usual

Hope this helps!

or this looks (from the photos as I haven't played it) a lot like a re skinned SABRE Team?

This is an excellent counter terrorism game. Think rainbow six 1-3 but on a strategy isometeric level. You can engage in hostage negotiation via a phone with the hostage takers. When thats ongoing or fails, you can reasearch more data and reveal in more detail the terroirsts for more information helpful to your plan to assault the location. You have access to an arsenal of weapons and gear. All sorts of real world pistols, SMG's, shotguns and sniper rifles, gas,gas masks, med kits. Each squad member has special skills and they improve after each mission. There is live video with your superiors. I still have this game on CDROM. I highly recommend it if you can get it to work.
