[lug] Sharing of CD ROM...

It looks like I have HFS working between two machines. One is my
laptop, running Slackware, the other is a "work in progress" that I
booted from Slackware "network" disks. I can mount exported files on
the floppy booted machine, but I can't see the cdrom. Is there a trick
to share out a CD-ROM?
The problem: I have an old 233MHz P2-MMX machine that I want to turn
into a firewall/router for my DSL connection. The CD drive is an OLD
quad speed that will not read CD-R's. So, it won't read my Slackware
install CDROM. I figured I could do an NFS install, but I can't seem to
get the re-build machine to see the CD on the laptop.
