  • What you might be looking for is clustered computing.

    A cluster is a group of computers bound together into a common resource pool. A given task can be executed on all computers or on any specific computer in the cluster.

    This way you can link your laptops together.

    What you require for a cluster?

    • At least two computers with Windows XP, Windows NT, SP6 or Windows 2000 networked with some sort of LAN equipment (hub, switch etc.).
    • Ensure during the Windows set up phase that TCP/IP, and NETBUI are installed, and that the network is started with all the network cards detected and the correct drivers installed.
