The only way (that I know of) to run a livecd inside linux is by running it as a virtual machine. Give virtualbox a try.

If it's a live CD, just boot from the CD, or as suggested before use a virtual machine.

Thanks jay73 and repo for reply. I tried the virtual box but it is not very useful. It is small screen only. one cannot enjoy it. I will boot from cd and see.
