    I am running an iMac 2.8 - 10.5.5 and its connected to the internet via an external Apple Mac usb modem ( 56k ) which works ok, ive just been given a netbook running windows xp but it has no built in modem, but ive managed to pair it up with my iMac using Bluetooth and it looks Ok, is it possible in some way to use the bluetooth connection from my iMac to the netbook
    and connect the netbook to the internet using the iMac internet connection ..?


    Thanks
