Kdar won't restore from multislice dvd archive.

I have a 4 DVD dar archive that I want to restore using Kdar. When I
insert the first disk and try to open the archive, I am told that the end
of the archive is not available and to supply it. Since the DVD drive is
locked by Kdar, I can't take out the first dvd and stick in the last.
Likewise, I am given no ability to input a different path for the last
dvd. Consequently, Kdar aborts the open with the message that it failed.
As a workaround, I use two dvd drives and create symlinks to them in a
directory on my hard drive. There must be a way to do this without such a
kludgy workaround. Unfortunately, the Kdar documentation doesn't mention
one. Is there some way to do what I want within the program?
