Sharing a wireless connection with a wired PC

I have a laptop that can connect wirelessly to a wireless network at my parent's home. Is there any way to share that connection via ethernet with my desktop computer?

So basically I don't want to buy a wireless networking card for my desktop -- this is only short term -- but I need to connect with my desktop. I want to use the vast power of my laptop to function merely as a wireless card for my desktop. I imagine that Internet Connection Sharing is involved and/or a crossover cable, but I'd love to do it with regular CAT5. Both computers running XP. Any ideas?
