If I remember correctly, you can copy the CD (set) to a large USB key on a different computer with a working DVD drive. Then install from the USB Key.

That is how I would approach it.

For future work, get a USB DVD Drive. I have one of these and this is how I deal with CD installations.

Use the tool of your choice to create an ISO of the CD on another system.   Then download and install the free Magic Disc [ http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-magicdisc-overview.htm ]

You'll now have a virtual DVD drive on your system -- just "mount" the ISO of the Access install CD into that drive, and install as normal.

OR ... just buy an external USB DVD drive :-)

if you don't have a USB port, you may be able to use the Internet
