fakecd is a program that simulates a CD-ROM drive with a directory of
a hard drive. Its intended purpose is to allow running of CD-based
software entirely from a hard drive. This gives you the following ad-
vantages:

1. speed: Hard drives are much faster than CD-ROMs. If you need much
data from your mass storage device in a short time your
CD-ROM may be a bottleneck. This can result in "slide shows"
in certain games. However, your CPU horsepower or your
video interface may be the problem if a CD-based program
is slow. With fakecd you can eliminate one potential bottle-
neck and watch how the program runs with a very fast "CD-ROM
drive".

2. memory: You don't need to load a CD-ROM driver or MSCDEX for fakecd
to work (although they can coexist). If your program needs
much conventional memory this may allow you to run the pro-
gram at all.
