Lightbulb Open FS Games in a Window?

I was wondering (and convinced there's a way)....

I recently re-purchased Final Fantasy VIII (PC vers)
The game however, comes with certain drawbacks.
(eg no music control, no quick method of loading saved game data, not even an exit game button)

My Question is this...
Is there a way to open FullScreen CDrom games (specifically FF8) in a window?

It would allow me to surf n play.
It would enable me to close the game in a less destructive manner.

I currently use Task Manager to close/exit the game, and Control+Esc to minimise the game.
(I have also moved the dsound folder to desktop, as means of music volume control - but off-topic)

Appologies if this is already done by the masses. I have not been able to find a method.

My system:
32bit, Vista SP2, nVidia GeForce, Sony Vaio, and it's Pink!
