cable bb to applemac needs wireless to xp laptop

my friends brother has cable bb running to an apple mac PC he wants to use his brothers cable line to connect his laptop to the internet wirelessly can you use a normal access point to create the signal or does the access point require a windows PC to drive it or a particular type of access point driven by a mac and if this is the case would it be compatible with the xp laptop
sorry if thats a bit longwinded but I have no experience of wifi only cable networking PC to PC

thanks for that link it does seem to cover everthing if a little dated (hopefully the prices will have dropped a little by now or my friends in for some expensive surprises)it may be simpler for him to ask cable to fit another connection to his room (a good way away from the original) or try an apple specialist dealer

thanks again
