On the drive:
Pins 0, 2, 4 & 6 go to ground.
Pins 1 & 3 go to +12V
Pin 5 goes to +5V
Pin 7 needs a 3.3V supply (hence the 1086V33)
Pin 8 goes to the common of a switch for the eject.
Pin 9 is left unconnected
On the eject switch:
Common goes to pin 8 of the drive
The normally closed side goes to ground
The normally open side goes to +3.3V or Pin 7 of the drive
On the 1086V33:
G to ground
O to pin 7
I to +5V of the PC power supply
The only bit I'm not sure on is the 1086V33, as far as I can tell it is used for the eject function as it needs 3.3V not 5V. If you have a 3.3V suply in the PC (if you're lucky, I doubt it) then I presume you could just tap off of that. You may even be able to force the 5V to use 1.7V elsewhere and only allow 3.3V through to the switch/pin 7 via resistance of some kind.
You may be better off selling the drive (replacement drives are valuable) and using that money to pick up a new PC drive which you can flash to read 360 games (see the latest firmware update on the main news page for the Samsung model nos... i forget what they are), it may work out easier, better and cheaper for you.

1086v33 is a voltage regulator. Should be able to pick one up from pretty much any electronics supplier.
Actually, 3.3v is available inside your PC. It's one of the standard voltages supplied by the PSU, and could easily be picked up from the ATX connector if you didn't want to use a voltage regulator. It's on the orange wires in the standard colour scheme.
