How can I run Delphi 2.0 Client/Server if it is installed in another computer or directly from a cd-rom drive?

Never tried, but I believe you'll have to at least install the BDE. And, isn't there a Windows directory on the CD's RunImage? If so, copy the files to Windows and Windows\System...

You should install BDE anyway. For running delphi you should
input all the registry data that Delphi puts in registry when
it installs on a computer. The data you would put in registry
should be configured for the alternate drive, where Delphi really
is.
