erasing a brain to use for memory. is it possible?

I have a desktop i don't use anymore that runs windows 98, i curently use a laptop that runs XP. I was wondering if it is possible to erase and departition (is that correct?) the desktop to use as an extra drive with the laptop when i wanted to?

If you delete the desktop HDD how are you going to connect it to the laptop? I expect it's via USB or Laplink. In either case you'll need an operating system in the PC. Why not make a very small partition and load XP in it and use a second partition on the disc for data?
