Question Mounting optical drive on another computer across the network - 07-12-2009, 10:58 PM

I've been google'ing for a few days now and cannot find a solid answer.

I have a Mini 9 with OSX 10.5.7 and want to mount a DVDRW that is being shared by a WinXP box.

The "DVD or CD Sharing" option is missing under System Preferences > Sharing

The option only appears if you enable it in DellEFI. Once it is enabled, an icon called Remote CD will appear in you Finder sidebar.
