Has anyone implemented a "virtual cdrom" facility as offered
windows?  That is CD images are cached & compressed on hard
disk and shared across a network. See:

I have not found any news of a Unix solution.  I would
like to offer one on a Linux server to Windows clients.

It should not be hard to implement with Samba...

Thanks in advance.
