Way to share the entire hard drive?

Question

The answer to the following question wasn't sufficient. The person asked me to right click on my C:/ and use file and printer sharing. I want something more than that. Also, using the file and printer sharing, doesn't solve my problem because this doesnt allow the programs to be shared. Only 'My Documents' and few other folders are shared, the rest are not!

I have a laptop(HP) and a DELL desktop. Both are currently using File and Printer sharing over the DSL wireless connection. However, I would like to network them in some usefull way for the sake of learning and being high techi. Also, is there a way for me to share the entire C: on the other one? I wish not to install the same programs and use the hard drive on my laptop. I wish to make my DELL the 'Applicaiton Server' or something.

Thanks for all your help
