Use RemoteDisc with XP and MacBookPro

I bought a 15" MacBookPro the other month. 2 weeks in my disc drive was shredding CD's - I'm still waiting on a replacement part.

In the mean time I need to install things from disc, like Office:mac, iWork, iLive etc. So I set out to find a way to use Apple's RemoteDisc with my MacBookPro. Why isn't this enabled for MacBooks and MacBookPros by default, because it's only "designed" to work with the MacBookAir. Sheesh...

Anyways, Jason Evangelho has a quick tutorial on how to enable RemoteDisc for all macs using Apple's oh-so-powerful defaults write. I can confirm it's working, as I'm using my work Dell to install iWork on my MacBookPro as we speak.
