Default GK2 installation errors

Good day all!

I've recently discovered Gabriel Knight and am trying to install the second game, Beast Within on my Windows Vista laptop.
Originally I tried to download the game using Enrico's installer. I couldn't, so I downloaded the 6 CDs using a torrent. Everything seemed to be going fine, until I finished installation and tried to run the autoplay.exe application. I'm given the error Cannot find 999.pal resource.

I know that it's the program looking for the disk, but I'm not sure how to go about changing the RESOURCE.WIN file to allow access to the files that are on my hard drive.

Incidentally, I have DOSBox, and was able to use Enrico's installer. I just had to tell it to use the files from the torrent for it to complete, though it too won't let me play. I get the 999.pal error as well.

I'm sure someone can help; I just need my hand held during the process.

If you downloaded the game illegally, we're not going to be able to help you.

There are solutions if you get a legitimate copy.
