It's far better to replace the drive that pigphrig around with tutorials, which most likely will lead to a plethora of other posts from the OP requiring further help with them...
Not necessarily, the laptop I originally wrote the tutorial Sami linked for has no drive and never will. Nearly everything you want to do on a laptop these days can be done through USB, if you leave the i386 folder intact on a separate partition this is a 1 time deal and re-installing is as simple as choosing DOS at the boot loader and installing again. The specialized hardware is about $20 and a new cd drive will likely cost more than that, if you can live without it it is a good option.
