Combining the processing power of two PCs

I'm normally extremely knowledgeable when it comes to computers (built this one myself), but I realized there's one thing I don't quite know.
This may be ridiculous, but I have an old laptop that pretty much has no function (it has a whopping 8 MB of video memory), in addition to the large, triple-monitor desktop on which I'm presently typing. My question is this: Is there a way for the two computers to somehow share processing power?
I know this may very well be impossible, but I thought I heard someone talking about a way to do it.

It is not possible, those two PCs run on different architectures I'm sure. What you're talking about is something like crossfire/sli or dual CPUs, which is possible, just not between two radically different parts, or even slightly different ones.
