What I did ones was install an ftp server on the NT machine (you can grab
them of the net for free, you could also use IIS or something for it, if
you got it). Only problem I ran into was the symbolic links on my CD
(where I copied it all from), so what I had to do, was move everything
from binary-all to binary-i386 (or other architecture) to get things
installed (otherwise you'll have zero length files :( ).
But this was just as first install on a system with no CD-rom drive, later
I definitly used a different way. :)
Maybe this was helpfull.
