<I'm a bit new at wireless technologies. I apologize if I use some terms improperly.>

I have two computers: a desktop connected to the internet via DSL that has a bluetooth dongle, and a laptop with bluetooth built-in. They both have Ubuntu 8.04 and WindowsXP.

I've been able to set-up a Bluetooth PAN using Windows on both machines. My desktop serves as the Network Access Point, and shares its DSL connection with my laptop via Bluetooth.

Q:

1) When my laptop is running Ubuntu, how do I connect to my Windows desktop Network Access Point?
2) How can I set-up my desktop as a Network Access Point using Ubuntu?
