When you insert a disc into the drive and click Build VCD, the contents of
the CD are transferred to a file that can be compressed to save space. Do
this with as many CDs as you want, and then choose an image to mount. The
image appears as though the CD-ROM were actually in the drive. VCD resources
can be shared across a network and controlled from a single workstation.
