Using KVM to create Virtual Machines -- how to access CD drive on local machine

Hi,
I'm using KVM on CentOS to create Virtual machines and it's working very well.
I'm connecting to those VM's using remote desktop on my local PC, actually it's a Mac running remote desktop but the same difference.

I want/need to be able to install something on the VM from a CD. But if I put the CD into my local machine running remote desktop, it's not showing up on the desktop.
I checked the settings for Remote Desktop and it doesn't seem to have an option to mount the CD from the client machine (my mac). Maybe this is different if I was using  PC as the client, I don't know.
But my basic question is, can I use the CD/DVD player on the client that is connecting to a VM to mount the contents of the CD/DVD on the VM?
Thanks,
Nacht
