A PB and iBook trying to connect through Airport?

I have a Powerbook and my girlfriend has an iBook. I'm trying to figure out if I can have a wireless network between the two comp's without cables or Airport basestations. I have created a wireless network from my PB with a WEP. I have entered the same info on the iBook. It says their connected but I can't transfer files or anything. I'm also trying to figure out of I can share an interenet connection. So that the PB is hardwired via ethernet and the iBook picks up the connection via Airport. Is this even possible?

Everytime I try and put a file on the "network" it says it can't because of error code -61.

Also when I look in the network under servers, I can only see my PB (from my PB obviously) and not the iBook.

Can I get some help?

Thanks in advance.
