I think CD version with a web server (e.g. Apache) will not work.
The web server must be registered as a service on your operaring system.
It's config files depend on the drive letter. 
Mapserver use a temperary directory for generated images in browse mode.
I can imagine shp2img can work from a cd. But it creates an image only, no 
user interface
You should use a GIS viewer software like openEV_FW for the off line
