In order to install Debian, you need to boot the Linux kernel and start the Debian installer. CD or disquette are the most practical way to do that. Once you have started the process once, you can then use your disks as high tech frisbees and get everything you need from the Net. But you have to bootstrap the process. You could build a solution where your laptop boots from a DHCP server on the local network, gets a kernel image via TFTP and the rest via a NFS mount (à la LTSP), but that's probably not what you want to do. In your case, the path of least resistance is to find a way to temporarily add a CD or floppy drive to your laptop. I fail to see how this can not be possible, even if it involves digging out the controller port on the motherboard and connecting a spare ribbon to it.
