Are you wanting to network them through a wired or wireless router, switch, or hub for internet access only, or are you wanting File and Print share <--- don't think the last part will happen, but i could be wrong.

"but here on IoM" = What is IoM
And if I am understanding the rest of your post correctly:
you have a Laptop or desktop with Windows ME, that currently has no Ethernet port or ethernet NIC / PCMIA card in it...but you do have a ethernet nic / pcmia card, for your laptop packed away somewhere.
Her Pc is also a laptop with Mac OS 10.3 and she is currently able to connect with a Mac Airport wireless Access point - which i assume is connected to your current broadband Modem.
If I am understanding you correctly, your current physical configuration is as follows:
Broadband Modem ---> Airport Wireless Access Point ---> Mac OS 10.3 Laptop
-----------------------------------------------------------------> Your Pc is not connected
And you are wanting to know how to add yours to the setup? Am I wright or wrong?

She -iMac 10.3
Me PC ME (no ethernet card/slot)
Broadband through Green Frog Modum
Manx Telecom isn't sure how to net work, so only 1 on at a time. No Problem as we are moving to main land and will use BT Broadband, which is probably more reliable, and much faster. They furnish Modum/router but what is the best network solution, and yes, file and printer sharing would be helpful to know

Both will work for your Windows Me Pc and both will connect to the Macintosh Airport Wireless Signal.
As for the File and Print Share with the Mac OS and Windows Me, I have not done it myself so I am not going to try and tell you how, but here is a link that gives a step by step guide how to do it:
