    Actually it's far easier to use the mac as the Internet server in this case. XP requires many hoops to jump through and it may screw up a default conection if you want to use the PC elsewhere.

    In the iMac, go to "System Preferences", "Sharing", "Internet"

    Check the boxes o the connection types you have, and click start. That's it!
