Windows 7: Possible to use I/O disc drive on another computer via Homegroup?

Possible to use I/O disc drive on another computer via Homegroup?

Hello,
I have a 10 yr. old machine with a floppy drive but it is running Home Premium. It doesn't support old XP programs.

A second newer machine runs Windows 7 Pro, which supports XP but doesn't have a floppy drive.

Both machines are part of the same Homegroup.

Is there some way for the Pro machine to read the floppy drive of the Home Premium machine?

I would like to run an XP program on the Pro machine but I/O is a problem.
Thanx
