Theres a few ways you could do this :
1. Get a USB 2.5inch drive caddy. This allows you to place your laptop hard drive into the caddy & connect to another system.
2. If you already have an OS loaded on the laptop & both laptop and second machine have network cards, you can link them together using a cross-over cable.
3. If theres no OS & you're really desperate, you can link the 2 systems via the parallel ports using a laplink cable. All you need then is a floppy boot disk with laplink for DOS on. Boot from floppy (both systems) & transfer files over that way.
4. If you don't have a second PC, then the only way is to borrow or buy an external CD ROM drive.
Of course, you could always email it to yourself from another PC! (yeah, right)
