The good news: You can borrow a drive from a Windows machine (Windows XP SP2 or newer).

Apple Support - DVD or CD sharing: Using Remote Disc

The bad: Remote access doesn't support CD-Audio, DVD-Video, copy-protected games, install disks for operating systems, or CD/DVD burning. Looks like it's just for read-only access to data files, i. e. the part of regular disk sharing that maps easily onto optical drives.
