    If you have a wireless router, yes.
    If not, then the answer is no.
    Of course, somebody will now correct me, and thus help you.

    Cheers

    Oh! I will! Okay, this is a way, but not the best way to share your DSL connection. You can download a proxy server for your PC, install and configure your computer to be the server. I use JanaServer to share my, wait for it... DIAL-UP, connection. (DSL and Cable Won't Reach Far Enough) Personally for you, I would recommend either AnalogX's Proxy, found
    here, or FreeProxy on snapfiles.com under freeware. Personally, I recommend FreeProxy because it's been updated updated. Then just configure your proxy settings on your iBook in the network settings with your IP address and your port your sharing it on. For more info on how to set it up, PM me.
