Is there a way to share a DVD reader between multiple machines?


Two machines connected via LAN
Older machine is running RedHat 3 Kernel 2.4.21-50.ELsmp on i686
Newer machine is at a current level of SUSE Linux.
Newer machine has a DVD drive.

Here's the question... Is it possible to, remotely, mount the DVD device to the older machine? If so, can it be used to install software packages?

Thanks.

You can simply share a mounted DVD over the network with other machines like any other folder. You can, for example, use NFS, SSHFS or Samba for that. But keep in mind that this will not work for video-DVDs.
