Help With Install Script

I have an installation script that my customer has been using for some time that exists on a DVD image I send to my customers. The DVD image I send to my customer has now reached the point of becoming multiple DVDs. My customer is in the habit of executing the installation script using the following method.

cd /DVD/mountpoint

I would like the installation script to prompt the customer to mount the second DVD and all the customer needs to do is hit enter once the DVD is mounted. The issue is that if the customer executes the script using this method they are sitting within the mount point. I recalled a way to re-execute the script after copying to /tmp/subdir, but what is the most seamless way to do this so that the customer can continue executing the installation in the same way? The installation script is a Korn shell script. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.
