Buy an external DVD drive, USB or Firewire. USB is probably less expensive and can be used to boot your MBP and attempt to repair the hard drive. Remote access is a royal pain as you found out. And trying to repair a hard drive remotely usually does not work. If you had another Mac you could do the repair and installation via Target Disk Mode, but without that, an external drive is best.
