Install xp on the laptop. A laptop won't work without an operating system.You can do this. But how do you mean "connect"? If you want to share files, then here's a way. If the laptop has a floppy drive and a network card you can make a network bootdisk to boot the laptop and connect to the laptop using ethernet . This will allow you to access shares on the desktop and u can copy over files from the laptop to the desktop but you can't access the laptop from the desktop.You can also try "LapLink" google it for more info.
