    getting an express to extend a non-apple wireless is a bit troublesome.
    Just joining is not problem though.

    if you can get ethernet to the second room, i would recommend using the express a second base station.

    -give both the same ssid
    -the exact same wireless security settings
    -different channels

    your computer (or other device) will pick the best signal and switch off.
