Getting XP to play nice on a Mac network

I'd like both computers in the house (one Mac, one XP) to share my WiFi network. This works great as long as the network is open, but I'd like it to be closed.

I'm a Mac guy, not very good with Windows. My router is an Apple Airport Express.
If I go into Airport Utility and set a password for the network, the PC won't connect. It doesn't even ask for a password, it simply says something to the effect of "A connection couldn't be established".
So for now, I went back to an open network, which works OK, but I have hop-ons sucking up my bandwidth.
Any way to keep it closed would be great, either password or MAC address.
Thanks in advance...
