Setting up a network between ME and XP-any advice?

I successfully set up a network between my Laptop and Pc using the wizard in windows. Both PC and laptop are XP, so not too many probs. My Dad would like me to do the same for him between his PC (ME) and my Mum's laptop (XP). Is this going to be difficult given the different operating systems? They are both using a Netgear Wireless Router/modem DG834Gt and Broadband internet.
Is there a wizard in ME the same as XP? (I am presuming that I set up the connection from the PC as that is cabled via ethernet to the router but if I'm wrong and it is easier to work from the laptop please let me know!) Thanks!
