Fake CD (no install)

    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.
