If your VNC's are connected across Internet, that would be quite hard because Windows doesn't support NFS nor does it accept "mounting" an ftp directory as a disk drive ......
Maybe you have to setup a VPN tunnel. Then share your local CD drive so then remote machine could mount (connect) your shared drive.
I don't know if SMB could work across Internet or what port it's using. (BTW, is SMB based on TCP/IP?) You might need to find documentations yourself.
