    it appears you''ll need to use
    SSH or X11vnc to connect to the old Notebook

    i have glanced at those two options.i could be wrong but they would require the laptops to be hooked in to a router so they would be part of a network. i am looking for a way to be able to have the computers function together when not connected to a network.thanks for your help
