Can I Dual Boot Ubuntu from a Virtual CD drive?view story

http://askubuntu.com – My Comp Sci professor told me to dual boot Ubuntu on my computer to get some experience with the Linux OS. However, my DVD drive is broken and my BIOS will not boot from a USB. My professor is telling me that I can dual boot from a virtual CD drive, like Daemon Tools, but from all the research I have been doing I haven't seen anything stating that this can be done.

Blank screen trying to boot from CD for installview story
