You can use File Sharing to copy files between the computers.
You probably can’t copy the music library for the reasons you mention, but you can copy the music into the library on the other computer.

You can also boot the laptop in Firewire Target Mode, and copy files between them.

I think you can even use the CD drive in target mode, as it should just think it’s a firewire drive.

You can also get a new external USB optical drive. We have a LaCie CD/DVD-RW for $59.
