    Pc to laptop?

    Is there anyway for me to connect my laptop to my pc when I don't have a OS on my laptop. I am trying to connect with a direct cable. My laptop is old and it doesn't have CD-drive or floppy and I have to get OS on it?

    well if you can get into BIOS there is a setting to request boot files from a LAN card, it will search for boot files on your network, if you share the cd rom drive on the desktop you should be able to detect them from a bootable cd.

    I thought if booting from lan you had to have a RIS server ?
