    As I wrote you can't but you also don't need to. CD ripping software just needs the device file to read from.
    When you have a modern desktop environment like Gnome or KDE with compiled-in audio CD support your file manager does the ripping for which actually looks like if the CD were mounted but actually it isn't.

    I kinda figured that would be the solution. I was hoping to keep the window manager lightweight as this specific system is a down-right beast with an AMD Athlon 4, 20GB HDD and wait for it.... 256MB RAM! Look out!

    You could try a command-line utility like cdparanoia. Also there's a lightweight gui one called ripperx.

    You can also use mplayer on the command line to play cd's or specific tracks without ripping.
    Here'sl how to do it.
