    my old laptop is getting pretty beat up in general, even the cd-rom drive is dead, so I can't re-install windows in the conventional matter. I was wondering if there was a way I could install it from a windows image I could have on my other computer on the home network (preferable) or find a way to boot from the windows CD hooked up as an pcmia external device? it doesn't show up in choices of devices to boot from in my bios (IBM laptop).

    thanks for any help
