Installation via remote CD

Hi - I am new to Linux - I have looked for an answer to this but failed.
Is there a way to install Red Hat 7 via a CD on second PC running Windows. The laptop that will have Red Hat doesnt have a CD but I have managed to get the PCMCIA network card running using the pcmcia.img boot floppy. The Windows PC has a network card too. I have shared the CD

i don't know if redhat is made for those sort of installs, i think at least you need a samba share that you can mount and start the install from.

Better way of doing this is reading here:

there you can download a set of disks (at least 2(base and rescue) and 3 other disks with the drivers on it) which are able to install the complete system over the net

It's debian, give it a try
