Can I use the superdrive on my older iMac to load software onto my brand new iMac?

I have a new 21.5" iMac on order, an upgrade from my late 2008 iMac, which I'm keeping. I was told by the Mac rep that I can use my older iMac's superdrive as opposed to having to purchase a separate optical drive. Is this true? If so, how does that work exactly? I very seldom need a superdrive, and only need it to install software on my new one.


Thanks in advance for your help! 

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
