He shouldn't need to copy the whole CD to the harddisk. The game should be able to run with just the CD. Explain to him that that makes problems on his computer, and that there is no reason he should have to.

Replace/add to his current storage capability. 60-100 Gig should keep him out of your shop for quite awhile.

Also, many games will offer different install options. Usually the Minimal Install will work with a fast system. The Medium install is a good choice because all it tends to leave off the HD is large video files and introductions, etc. Load times maybe a little longer, but for the most part he will be able to play fine. If he needs to conserve space, I'd recommend he use one of these options rather than the full installs.
