I would like to provide my parents with a faster internet connection--DSL. They have a Compaq Prosignia 165 laptop with a P-2 processor & 128 (?) mb of RAM. The computer has Type I and II PC slots. What is my best way to connect to DSL with this configuration?

you may have many options. 1. add a NIC. 2. if the laptop comes with USB, you can buy a USB network adapter. 3. or if both DSL and laptop have USB, you may be able to connect them. for enabling windows sharing, visit this page, http://www.howtonetw...blesharing0.htm.
