    ibook as server?
    i just moved on campus for my final yr in college we live in a apt w/4 bedrooms all with an ethernet connection. if i plug in my ibook g4 w/airport card can use it as a server for a wireless network in the apt? if that doesnt work i presume id need a base station. is it as simple as pluging the ethernet cable into the base station and connecting to it using the airport card in the ibook?

    Plug in your iBook to the ethernet
    Go to System Preferences -> Sharing
    Click the Internet tab and set to share the connection from ethernet using Airport
