I have a wireless router, and a wireless card in my Ibook. I don't have a wireless card in my WinXP desktop. Is it possible to physically network the desktop and the Ibook and then connect to the router with the desktop via the ibook?

Well, turns out I could figure that one out on my own. I keep underestimating my mac!

Just so this thread isn't a waste: Under system preferences, then sharing, there's an option to share an internet connection over the network. Check that, and everything else falls into place by itself, even with a windows box on the other end!
