I've seen some pretty neat software like AlcoholSoft which emulates cds, vmware and virtualpc which emulate a whole computer. I want something much simplier... A virtual hdd. I want software that emulates a hard-drive... any ideas?

and no i dont want drive mapping or things like that. Want pure virtual hardware

>Want pure virtual hardware
What are you trying to accomplish?
Ram drives reserve some physical memory and assign a drive letter. They're fast, and volatile - power down or crash and their contents are gone.
Network drives assign a drive letter or use a UNC to an area on a remote computer.
PGP can create create an encrypted file system on your hard drive and assign a drive letter to that.
Solid state drives are hardware that contain ram and emulate a hard drive, either battery backed or flash.
DOC (disk on chip) are eproms used on motherboards equipped with the proper socket that emulate a drive for diskless booting.
PXE and bootp can emulate a boot device to boot from a server holding a boot image.
