Also consider a program called Fetch.  You can index all your images on
CD, leave the file names/thumbs on the HD and when you call them up it
tells you which CD to load.  Does key works and other stuff too.  A
friend set up the SD Padres team photo library using this system and it
works fine.  And they will do a hundred pix a game, 160 games a year
plus other stuff.
