Is it possible to share a CD or DVD drive over a network (so that it can be used by another computer)?

Yes you can. Just do the same steps you would do for sharing any other folder.

And I can also install programs from the CD/DVD drive from a networked computer, right?

Yep. Just make sure you direct it to the computer you're accessing it from.

I actually once watched a DVD from a shared DVD-ROM on a different computer :)
