[mythtv-users] URGENT: Edgy as temp router

I have a bit of an urgent request...
Recently, an engineer really screwed someone up and cut my cable line so
I no longer have broadband access. My neighbor has allowed me to
temporarily use his wifi network while my ISP gets on to repairing mine.
My laptop is great, but I need my wire-only desktop to grab some
internet access too. Is it possible to use my Edgy laptop as a makeshift
wifi access portal easily?? The wifi card connects happily to the doner
network, and I can get the laptop and desktop to talk to each other over
a crossover cat5 cable, but what I really need is for the desktop to
pass through the ethernet port onto the wifi network, getting it's own
dhcp and such rather than installing a dhcp and dns servers on the laptop.
Is this possibly to do quickly and in an easily reversible manner??
Thanks in advance.
