Trash bin Can LBA2 be run without actual cd?

Hi guyz this is my first post and i wanna know if u can run LBA2 without an actual cd.

I firstly had the stripey graphics problem but then downloaded funnyfrog's patch and it seemed to work fine. Except that it asked for the cd . I then downloaded the no cd patch but i forgot it was also a .exe (it was 12 pm) the no cd patch also worked but it then gave me the stripes again . Plz gimme some help or maybe a link to an .iso because i coudnt find one D;.

(PS. I am currently running Win Vista, and i have the latest Daemon tools installed EDIT: and DosBox :P)

Not that it's completely legal to play the game without the CD, you could just mount an image anyway, using Dosbox (without Funnyfrog's patch!) may also work. See the Dosbox guide at the top of this forum.

You can mount ISO images in dosbox using imgmount D [c:\lba2.cue or whatever] -t iso.

Then I guess you have the rip without videos and voices and music? That wouldn't do LBA2 justice.
