Fakecd is a well known program for emulation in DOS.
But, you can add this line in autoexec.bat and Win 9x
will recognize that drive or dir also as cd-rom drive :
fakecd c:\game /L:x
where x is a drive letter for emulated cd-rom (a-z)

Yeah, true. Though it's useful to know there is CD emulation software for DOS.
