How do I allow pc users to use my cd drive, external drives etc over a network?

System Preferences -> Sharing -> File sharing. Turn that on. Any CD or DVD inserted should then be shared.

If someone else tries to access your computer via file sharing, then they'll get a selection of volumes they can mount. It wont pop up anywhere special until they login. On windows, a mounted network volume will show up in My Computer.
