Wireless tutorial? - Mac Applications & Software

I have a B/W G3 with a DSL modem and my fiancee has a Pismo Powerbook. We'd like to connect the Pismo to the internet with an Airport card (or whatever is least expensive) so we can both surf at the same time. Are there any online tutorials that explain what is needed and how to set things up? Thanks...

    Hmm... Just dive right in. I did pretty well with Apple's setup programs
    and the Help files...

    Here are the basics, as I see it:
    - Have the Airport card installed in the Pismo, but don't try using it
    just yet
    - Have the Pismo running well connected to the DSL modem with ethernet
    - Unplug the Pismo and replace it with the Airport Base Station (there
    are two ethernet ports on the ABS, use the WAN port)
    - Run the Airport Setup Assistant on the Pismo
    - Verify that you have wireless connectivity from the Pismo
    - Now plug the B/W G3 into the LAN ethernet port on the Airport Base
    Station; you might have to try regular vs. crossover cable or put an
    ethernet hub (real cheap now) between them.

    WAN = wide area network, that is, the outside world
    LAN = local area network, that is, the ethernet cord and anything it's
    connected to in your house.

    This is working very, very well for me.
