Likewise, WinClone is sadly discontinued software. It still works in 10.5 and 10.6, but won't ever be updated to 10.7. I also asked around for an alternative a few days ago, but got nothing.
As Hansi said (I'm elaborating), your best bet is to create the Boot Camp partition you require on the desktop. When it says to restart with a Windows disc, instead put the desktop into target disk mode, and connect it to your laptop over Firewire. On the laptop, load up WinClone, and select the newly created partition on your desktop (Be EXTRA careful about what partition you choose), then just wait it out and it should be fine.
