How to use cdrom of another computer in the network from server PC


I am sitting in front of a suse server computer and i have to install php-mysql package in this server.When i am doing that through yast it is asking for the cd of suse.I have that cd but i cannot connect the cdrom to that server.The cdrom is connected to another PC which i can also access.Is there anyway to install that package using the cdrom connected to other PC.

The easiest way I can think of (without somehow copying the cd over...) is to (i) mount the cd drive to e.g. /mnt/cd on the other computer, (ii) export /mnt/cd as an nfs share from that computer, and (iii) mount the nfs share on the server, which'll be as good as having the cd on the server.

There are plenty of tutorials on nfs shares on t'web - if you're not comfortable with that you can always just tar the cd up and set your other computer up as an ftp/http server to get it.

Don't know which option would take longer...
