Installing an old program on XP Mode - urgent

hi all,

Windows 7 refused to install an old program that was probably intended for Win98, so I am downloading XP Mode, but Im not sure if I can install something from a CD onto a virtual PC, this is the first time I do this.

Any help would be appreciated cause I need this program today...

XP Mode will be able to access your CD if you have integration features enabled.
