I don't know how OS X works, so I don't know the correct solution
for this.  But if you can copy the CD-ROM to an ISO image file,
then it should work to specify the ISO file as the argument to
CD-ROM.  This is what I always do.
On Perl: "It's as if H.P. Lovecraft, returned from the dead and speaking by
seance to Larry Wall, designed a language both elegant and terrifying for his
Elder Things to write programs in, and forgot that the Shoggoths didn't turn
out quite so well in the long run." --Matt Olson
