  • You'd do this the same way you would on any other computer.  You'll need to use remote desktop to log onto the Home Server.  Once on the Home Server right click on the CD drive and share it out.  You can then go into printers and install/share them from there.  Just be very careful on what you change while remotely logged onto the server.  It can be easy to break things.

    FYI, sharing CD/DVD drives and/or printers on WHS is unsupported (since it requires logging into the server desktop).  Having said that, as long as you follow HarborTed's advice, you should be ok.
