RE: Any computer wizards?
Here is a link on how to make an Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) with your topology: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/windows98ics/g/bldef_ics.htm
"Ad Hoc Mode With Windows ICS
Alternatively, you can try Windows Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) or equivalent software that relies on one computer hosting the Net connection. This option requires at a minimum that the host computer have a modem (either internal or external), and that all wireless network cards be configured for ad hoc (peer-to-peer) mode. This option works best if you only have a few home computers located close to each other.
Those who prefer the first option usually already own a wired broadband router that supports external modems. Because the second option requires neither a wired router nor an external modem, it is usually cheaper and easier to set up for those building new home networks from the ground up.

In your case you are using the second described option...
