Running MySQL Database Engine from CD

Hi all,

how do you make mySQL run from a read-only media like a CD-ROM?

I mean the Engine itself, of course the data must be
writable/updatable.

I have found links but most of them seem to be about 'read only
tables' and some other ones are written in German.

I need to actually run the ENgine from CD and the data, log,
temporary or any other writable files shoudl be on the hard drive.

How do you do something like thta?

I had mixed results getting it to run on 98 and 2000, xp was fine, i
suggest some extensive testing on your target systems.
