Hey everyone. Let me preface this by saying I'm new to both Macs and networking.

I have a 1.42ghz G4 Mac mini with a broadband connection and airport. My work PC is a Dell laptop, which is wireless capable. What I'd like to do is be able to RAS(remotely access server)my work server via wireless connection from my mini to my Dell - basically piggyback my broadband connection wirelessly. Is this even possible? I read something in MacAnswers magazine that led me to believe this can be done via the Sharing option in System Preferences, but as I said, I'm completely new to doing this, and I'm unsure if I have all the bases covered.

Thoughts or answers?
