What Do I Need For Wireless Connection?

I have bought a Tiny PC with 802.11g 54 Meg Wi-Fi Wireless system and I would like to connect it to my old computer which is a Advent P500 running Win98SE but I don`t know what card or whatever to buy for the Advent.The main reason for connecting them is to share my NTL Broadband connection so that my daughters can both be on the internet at the same time and give me a bit of peace.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

First find out the make of wireless network card is fitted to your Tiny pc and then buy a wireless network card of the same make for your other pc.Then run network setup wizard on the Tiny pc first,follow instuctions when asked if you want to make a floppy to run setup on another pc answer yes, run network setup on other pc from floppy and all should be quiet in the house of Learalike
