Fake CD

Hi all,

Did you know if it is possible to boot a CD from a directory?
I found a application named FakeCD to perform this with Windows. I am looking for something similar on Linux?


From googling, I now know this about FakeCD:

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.

In linux, this is easy to do without software. It can be done with simple commands from a terminal. A simple how to here:

Note: This may already be obvious to you, but if the CD contains windows software, you will still need to use wine to execute any exe files.
