I am going on holiday and will be using a mobile broadband dongle that connects to my MacBook Pro (latest model) via USB. My question is: can I somehow share that connection over my Airport Express so I can create a WiFi zone for my iPhone etc? If so, how do I do that? Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help answering this question.

Yeah, share it like you would any other connection. See sharing your internet connection (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8156.html) on Apple's support page.

Ya you can connect your iphone and macbook with the same wifi connection. But you should have to enable internet connection sharing on the the macbook pro.Go to conrol Panel and change your setting.First click on the Network and internet connection then click on the internet connection.Right click the connection that you will be sharing.Then click on properties and open advanced tab.At last Check the box that allows other computers to use the host computer's Internet connection.
