Default Future purchase concerns...

Sorry, if this forum doesn't deal with Apple topics, I apologize for any inconvieniance.
I'm planning on buying an Apple Macbook at the end of the year, and I wish to set up a wireless network using the apple Airport express. I currently have a PC (Windows XP), with a Broadband modem (Blueyonder). I need to know if it is possible to create the wireless network, using the same modem attached to the PC, but also run the Macbook off the connection?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

It shouldn't be a problem... i have helped set up a lab of Dell Laptops and a Lab of old "ice" books (G4) and they both ran of an apple airport

Yep you will be fine. You will just need a wireless router. My apartment router has 3 windows desktops wired, and 2 windows laptops, 1 mac laptop, and 1 mac desktop running wirelessly. The macs handle the wireless better than the windows machines for sure.
