Is it true that the internet can be accessed without having a hard drive in your laptop?

I use my computer basically to access the internet ....ebay in particular. I want to purchase a laptop without a hard drive but network it with my desk top & share intenet connection. The desk top is a Dell OS is XP home & I'm planning on purchasing a IBM thinkpad no particular series.

Any information you may be able to give will be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,


Myys

Not sure if this is what you had in mind.
But it is a way of doing it.

if you set up the network correctly with the proper options you can boot from an os image on the network.......but even then....i think you would still need a hard drive......it's gotta have somewhere to store the malware right?

BartPE would be another option I think. Knoppix is a linux os.. don't know how familiar you are with it.
