LAN install

Hi,

I need to re-install XP Home on a laptop, but the CD drive is broken and
there is no floppy drive. I also cannot boot from USB.

The laptop's BIOS supports booting from LAN and has a PXE enabled network
card. My desktop system has a Netgear router which uses DHCP and I have TFTP
server software. It seems like I'm all set, but my question is I don't know
which files I need to copy from the XP Home CD - do I just copy the entire CD
into the TFTP server root? If so, when I boot from LAN will the installation
operate in the same way as if I were running the installation from a CD?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

You may just copy the I386 folder to the system. you can run winnt.exe in the
folder after you boot the system up.
