You could've gotten this from my site (Planescape: Torment Problems & Solutions document) but anyway here goes:
The full install of the game requires a total of about 2.38GB of space. After you have installed the game via the installer program, do the following:
1.) Create a folder on the hard drive that you wish to install the game data to. For this example we'll create a folder on the C drive called TData.
2.) Now in C:\TData create three new folders called CD2, CD3, and CD4.
3.) Insert Torment CD 2 and copy the entire contents of the CD to C:\TData\CD2. Repeat this step with CDs 3 and 4 copying the entire CDs to their corresponding folders.
4.) Edit your Torment.ini file using Notepad or some similar text editor. This file can normally be found in C:\Program Files\Blackisle\Torment. At the very top of the page you'll want to edit the lines that start with CD2, CD3, CD4. Edit them as follows: CD2:=C:\TData\CD2 CD3:=C:\TData\CD3 CD4:=C:\TData\CD4
5.) From time to time the game will ask you for disk two to authenticate the game. When playing the game keep this disk in your CD tray. You have now completed the full install of Planescape: Torment.
