ok I have my cable modem downstairs and it connects to my airport and it gives a wireless signal to my sisters iBook and my iMac and I have a cable running from the airport to my xbox to give 3 things internet access... My problem is I have another computer (XP PC) upstairs that does not have a wireless internet card. Can I buy an airport express and connect the express to the PC via ethernet cable and get a signal? Thanks!

That sounds expensive. You should be able to find an 802.11b wireless USB device for $20-$30.00, and then your XP box can join your network.
