Possible to install from CD using distutils?

    Hi. I'm trying to distribute a Python package on a CD-ROM that gets
    installed using distutils. The problem is that distutils attempts to
    write a new 'build' folder on the CD during the installation and fails
    (it of course can't write the to CD). I know the user could copy my
    files onto his hard drive and then install the package, but I'm trying
    to make the installation as simple as possible. So... is there a way
    to tell distutils to use the hard drive when it's being run from a CD?

    Thanks.

    Bob
