hard drive install

I have a Toshiba laptop, about 4 years old Celeron with 64 meg. The CD drive does not work, and it has Win ME on it. I have tried Slackware and Xandros on my newer laptop, and would like to install Linux on this. Any suggestions for installing without a CD? Are some distros more suited to installing from the hard drive. I have DSL, so I can download a distro if needed, and I have a home network, if there is someway to install from another computer over the network.
Thanks in advance,

There was a nice thread in these forums a few weeks ago explaining how to install from a downloaded ISO image on a hard drive. Try How to install Fedora without a CDROM
