It was a bit tedious, but it worked. Here's how:
I created a directory for the contents of each floppy, eg Game01, Game02, Game03, ... and I created an empty directory named Game.

I "mount a c:\dosGames\Game" to point to the empty Dir.
Then from another Dos window, I renamed Game to Game99 and renamed the first Game floppy directory (Game01) to Game: "Rename Game01 Game" and then switched back to the DoxBox and typed CTRL-F4 to refresh the diskcaching on A. A "Dir" on a shows the correct contents.

I then start the install. When the installer asks for another floppy, I go back to the Dos window, renamed the current Game dir to the original Game## and then renamed the next floppy dir to Game. I then clicked on the DosBox window and pressed CTRL-F4 again. Then I told the install to continue.

I did this for every floppy in the game until it reached the end.

The game installed and ran-W00t!

Being a developer using DOSBox 0.74 for so long I am not really that smart about all the options!!
