    How do you install xp over a network. I have a laptop that I want to install XP in but no cd drive. I can connect it to my home network but how do I have the laptop join the network if it has a blank hard drive? Or is it even possible?

    if you can get it to boot from the network, you can use the Windows XP OEM Pre-installation kit.

    Yep, make sure you have a PXE compliant network card in there. That will allow you boot up from the network.
