The easiest way is to join the laptop on the network and to have a shared CD-ROM in one of the computers on the network and copy from there the i386 directory from a W2K installation CD.(of course, in a second partition i.e.: \). That's it. Also you can create W2K boot disks and use them.

A Second option would be to create a bootable diskette, that can access the network through
the pcmcia network or onboard connection. The drivers for a dos or windows bootable disk should be on the vendors website along with basic config files.

This will allow you to run a network install

I would use either of three options:

1. As in the previous suggestion, create a bootable network disk and run Winnt.exe from the network share. Remember that the win2k administrative installation share could be slipstreamed to include the servicepacks.

OR

2. Use Remote Installation Services on a win2K server, if available. It?s what it was created to do! (Assumes PXE complaint laptop LAN adapter)

3. (never tried this!) Install the laptop hard drive in a laptop with a CDROM, run setup and after the file copying is complete, shutdown and transfer the hard drive back.

Regards,
Tictag.
