Yes, the DVD drive is just a drive that reads the discs.

The catch here is that you need a software or hardware decoder (read: a DVD
player program or hardware decoder board) that supports different regions.
I'm not particularly fond of the Xing DVD player (
but it does have multiple region support, even if it doesn't work all the
time. I don't know of there are many others, but chances are the new system
will have a DVD player of some kind on it, which would most likely support
the different regions.
