Default Put cd on hard drive instead of swaping cd's

Instead of running encarta from cd how do i put it on my hard drive? Guess I'm just lazy. Then I'd be able to just click on Desk top icon. Easier than putting the disc in everytime I want to look somthing up.

For those who come back and refer to this forum, this is a good program that allows you to take an image of your CD and then runs it form that image using a virtual drive with out having to keep swapping the CDs over and over again. read it about it first as you will need some software like nero to burn of an image from the CD/DVD to your hard drive, heres the link:

it doesnt take the protection of games so those planning to use it for that then you will need something like alcohol 120%:

this is shareware only though
