First you should get a free virtual machine application. Consider any of these. VirtualPC, VirtualBox or VMplayer then follow the instructions for then on how to install an OS.

I can't see that it would not work apart from the fact that it won't handle DVDs. CDRoms are so cheap why are you mucking around with a unit that is all of 10 years old? I may be wrong but...

Advice could be more to the point if you said what was on the 'CD-ROM'. If it is a program, you might be able to get it to run under a virtual machine as above, but is it worth it? Depending on the program, you would probably get more out of a more modern version of the software and it might not be that expensive, or maybe it is available opensource (free) or one close enough to it. If you give all of the facts, your answer could be really informative.

Thanks for the help. To answer the question about mucking around with a CD-Rom. This is an older screen saver that is no longer available.

It may not be compatible with Windows 7.
You really do not need screen savers with modern monitors except as a way to hide your desktop from others viewing it.
