iMac - G3 333 connect to PC?

I've bought a cheap iMac 333 (160m ram) to dip my toes in the mac world. I hope to be able to upgrade the ram and eventually install OS 10.3.
However, I currently have OS 9.2.

My regular PC is connected wirelessly to a DLink router/modem. I had hoped to be able to connect the iMac to the PC with a crossover cable and connect to the internet.

Can this 'piggyback' approach be done?

I can ping the iMac now from the PC but thats about as far as I've gotten.

this is probably a stupid idea, right?
anyhow, plugged it straight into the router and no problems. Using it now (netscape really brings back the memories).

it really needs a serious ram upgrade though, so I'll do that next before considering buying 10.x.

having fun though! don't think I'll bother putting xubuntu on.
QUOTE Thanks
