Folder list order

I did try "virtual cd rom control panel", but it didn't seem to want
to mount any images I made from Toast on Mac (whichever format I
chose ISO, UDF etc...) so I gave up with it. I'm afraid I am a bit
of a Windows dunce. I make my CD's on Mac using Toast, so if you know
of a specific PC utility that will mount these on XP I'd like to hear
Indeed, what I'd really like is to have a locked CD image mounted on
my G5 that is available to PC on network that sees it as a CD. But
I've not found a way to do that. Most of the time testing from a
shared folder on my G5 is fine. This is the first time that I've
come across a non-speed related issue that differs between CD and HD...
Thanks for the advice,
