Windows NT, isos, no privilages


I need to get 2 isos of a WIDOWS NT laptop. I cant do much in windows NT. The laptop has a 2nd empty hdd. I have a slack 9 cd and mandrake 9.1 cd1. I need to get onto the laptop and get 2 isos of that ocmputer onto my one either by burning (usb burner) or network. The laptop is set up to join a domain network and i lack the knowledge and utilities to be able to connect the two together through NT. Is it possible (without installing TOO much) to get the isos from the NTFS drive to my computer using the linux cds i have???? or something. I dont have the ability to download anythign of great size (over 5 megs).

Install Slack (or Mandrake if you prefer).
Mount the NTFS partition as read only.
Transfer the ISOs via network onto another PC (if the Linux partition is not big enough that is).

If that is too daunting for you, then get NTFS Reader for DOS and work your way from there.

Hope this helps

The least stressful thing would be using
ftp of the laptop to the other machine
(if you had a CD-based Linux like
knoppix and the machines HDD was
fat of some kind)....

Cheers,
Tink

Doh ... then you'll need some NT network tweaking...
that is: if the big box was NT advanced
server it might have an ftp-daemon running.

The problem is that setting up the network
on the fly of the boot-disk is usually non-trivial.
(I'm not saying it can't be done, even though
it quite depends on your individual distro)

Cheers,
Tink
