do you have a router or are you trying to just connect through your desktop with no router?
if that is the case then you are better off using a crossover cable from your desktop to your laptop and with windows xp i am almost 100% positive there is a setting in your internet connections that you can set to alow all computers connected to the desktop to use the internet supplied by the desktop.
i feel the best bet is to spend a little money on a regular linksys router *i believe staples is giving back $45 rebates when u pay $50* then using your current ethernet cables just connect and you have urself a network and with the instructions and the cd that linksys gives you there should be absolutly no way to not set this up correctly you just have to have constant internet connection on the desktop
