How do you install Skyrim with steam from the disk?

How do you install with steam from the disk?

I tried installing from the disk once before using the officially supported Skyrim optimiser from the install software list and it completely trashed the steam client and I had to delete the entire steam bottle and start from scratch! On the steam support website, it has these instructions for installing from the retail disk (it's ridiculous!):  

Can this be done with crossover's Run command tool to the same effect? How would I specify the DVD drive?

It should be doable in theory. Be sure to select the correct bottle. You can find out the dvd drive letter with winecfg, which you can open by entering "winecfg" without the quotes as command to run. Alternatively you can open winecfg from the bottle manager.

You can also try to use Z:\Volumes\DVD_Name as install source. Replace "DVD_Name" with the label of your disk of course.
