I will shortly be getting an iBook G4, and am considering how best to connect it to the internet.

I have a PC running XP that has a broadband connection and a Bluetooth dongle that up until now I have been using to sync. my mobile phone.

The iBook i have ordered has buit-in Blutooth. Will it be possible to netowrk the two computers and thus share the PC's internet connection with the iBook?

I know the best solution would be to buy an Airport card and base station, but I live in quite a small apartment and it seems like an unescassary expense, as I will always be within a few meters of the PC.


Thanks for any advice you can offer.
