Airport would in fact be an excellent solution to share your cable
internet connection between your iMac and your PowerBook. You need
to add wireless 802.11b capability to the iMac. The simplest way to
accomplish this is to purchase a device such as the Linksys WET11
wireless ethernet bridge, and plug it into the ethernet port of the
iMac. It requires no drivers, and will work very well for your needs.
There are also 802.11b USB adaptors, but I would not recommend these,
although they are slightly cheaper. Amongst other things, they require
Amazon lists the WET11 at prices starting from $75.00, and perhaps
you'll find it cheaper elsewhere.
