How do i install modern warfare 2 without downloading it?

Hi i preordered MW2 and now i'm trying to install it but steam keeps insisting on downloading it although i've clicked on install several times with the disk in. This has got to be the worst program known to man, I actually think that activision are a bunch of dumbasses for using steam. ANY help at all would be muchly appreciated

    I agree, steam has been nothing but problems.

    Try this -

    1. Close steam (File - Exit)

    2. From the start menu, select run

    3. Enter "c:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -install E:

    (change E: to your DVD drive)

    4. Press OK.

    Alternatively, try removing and then reinserting DVD and selecting "reinstall". From some reports this correctly installs from the DVD rather than downloading.
