Civilization issue

Recently picked up a boxed copy of Civilization with all the manuals which looked to be in amazing condition. However I ran through the HD install which went perfectly yet when I boot the game it keeps asking me to insert Disk 8. As far as I'm aware there is only 4 disks and a quick look on several auctions on ebay shows the same, have I done something silly?

I know this problem. The original DOS installer tells (after the install) you to write these assigns in your s-s or user-startup iirc.

Quote:
ASSIGN CIV1: DHX:CIVILIZATION/
ASSIGN CIV2: DHX:CIVILIZATION/
ASSIGN CIV3: DHX:CIVILIZATION/
ASSIGN CIV4: DHX:CIVILIZATION/
This should work. If not, try the WHDLoad preinstalled version. DHX: is your HD, e.g. DH0.
