TechHelp: NeverWinter Nights Mac Backup Copy?

As most people are aware, I am not opposed to companies protecting their intellectual property. After all, I make money through IP means.

However, I *AM* opposed to companies protecting their IP in such a way as to make it impossible for me to perform perfectly legitimate actions. In this case, I want to make a backup disc for NeverWinter Nights (Mac version) so that I can have the original stored safely and my son, for whom I bought the game, can still play it. Or vice versa, I don't care.

The problem is that which I can *apparently* copy the disc onto a CD (or my desktop, for that matter), something is obviously not quite right with the copy, because NWN won't start with any copy; it demands the real NWN play disc.

Anyone know a workaround? I hate having software which may become useless simply because of one stupid accident -- and with no less than 4 kids under 10 in the house, stupid accidents are all too likely.
