Do i understand you correctly, you do not have an operating system on the desktop computer, only on the laptop?
You first need to share the drive on the laptop before you can access it. Also you need to make sure both computers are on the same work group.
If you are trying to copy Windows from the laptop to the desktop, you are wasting your time.
Much quicker to get a Win98 CD and load windows on the desktop.

Not sure I understand but it sounds like you don't have a hard drive in the desktop and want to run win98 from the laptop? Simple answer is no. Post back with more detail on what you are trying to accomplish.
