Sharing a DVD drive (and watching movies) on a LAN

A three pc LAN (running 2000/XP) but only one dvd drive. I'd like the other two pc's to be able to watch dvd movies from that shared drive...

The problem is, all I'm seeing in the dvd drive/movie disk on the other computers is audio and video directories and alot of IFO/BUP/VOB files - no dvd menu or autostart file - no movie. I'm using VideoLAN and a codec-loaded Windows Media Player with no success. Help from the hive in configuring this proper would be awesome.
If it's something obvious, I apologise. It's late, I'm tired, and I've run out of patience.
