does it give the option to install it for you?
if so, let it, see what happens.
can't remember what game it is but I have one that always asks, and must reinstall DX9c. If I say no, the install exits. programming issue maybe.

First google hit turned up a possible solution..

Works fine, if you follow these steps (thanks to linux-gamers.net):

1. Copy the entire 1st CD to a harddrive other than C:
2. Edit the file AutoRun/autorun.cfg:
...
DirectXVersion=0
StartMenuDXEULA=0
...
3. Run the installer and it should work

Quote:
DirectX Error when Installing: When installing the game if you get an error that DirectX9.0c is not installed, even if you've installed DX9.0c already, then find the game's Autorun.exe file (in the base directory of the game CD), right-click on it, select Properties, go to the Compatibility tab, tick the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select 'Windows 2000'. Then double-click on Autorun.exe to begin installation. Make sure to turn off compatibility mode after installing the game.
