I have a mac air that obviously has no cd rom drive. is there a way i can share my macbook pro cd drive. I dont even know where to look to set it up. i see a remote cd disk icon on my air but no way to set it up.

i figured it out. on the system with the dvd drive go into sharing and check cd dvd sharing. then allow connections for dvd sharing under firewall settings. on the mac air
click on remote disk. then the mac system with the drive then ask to connect. once you say ok on the other computer the air will have access to the drive. neat...
