Question use laptop as screen+keyboard for desktop

Hello, I've got a (relatively) old HP Omnibook laptop. I also have a newer Shuttle SS51G desktop that is much, much faster. I would like to somehow use the laptop mouse, keyboard and screen to control the desktop directly. Is that possible? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

How good are you at finding the right connections and soldering? I guess you can do it but you will need to find out the schematics for the laptop wiring. Good luck and let us know if you did it.
