Yes

I don't remember where, exactly, but I have read in the docs how to read a CD. I'll post it if I get around to finding it, but be assured it can be done, and is documented (google is your best friend).

If you're desperate, you coul

If you're desperate, you could do a roundabout method of mounting the disk image under Basilisk II, moving or installing whatever you need from CD, then mounting the image back in vMac.

I couldn't figure out CD usage on my Mini vMac install (er...that's the Mini vMac version of vMac, not using vMac on a Mac mini Wink ).

vMac compatible with mini vMac?

How compatible are vMac and mini vMac? When I read this post, I was thinking of documentation for mini vMac (still haven't looked too deeply for it), but I do remember reading about how to use devices, including cdrom, with mini vMac.

What OS?

Are you running on MacOS? (i.e. Classic?) or some other OS?
