You already have good advice on moving the hard drive to another
computer for the install. Good advice. The net-install depends on
having internet access (modem, wired or wireless NIC) which you don't
mention that you have on the laptop.
You will need some minimum memory, I think it is around 32 mb. I
recommend first trying Toms Root Boot floppy on it; I believe toms
will run in 16mb.
