Not a big fan of keeping old CDs around

Classic Mac emulation-filter: I have apps that require CDs to run. How can I convert my CDs to mountable disk images in SheepShaver/OS 9?

I'm running SheepShaver on OS X. I can use the CD-ROM driver so the virtual machine sees discs inserted in the physical computer but I'm trying to avoid that by running everything off the HDD. Should I make the disk images in OS X or OS 9? What app should I use to make them, and what format should they be? Are there caveats I should be aware of, where apps won't recognize the disk if it's not actually a CD? If so, is there a setting in SheepShaver to get around that?
