How to install XP w/o cdrom drive

Specs: Windows XP
I wanted to re install xp on my laptop, but broke my cd-rim and don't currently have an external. I can physically plug my laptop drive into my desktop pc with a cd-rom. Is there any way I can put the cd install files on my laptop drive so that i can boot the install as if the disk were in there? Can I leave them on a different partition so they can be used int he future? How do i make the bootable cd nto a bootable hard drive?

Thanks,
Cody
