Can I wirelessly connect my iBook to my (rather restrictive) work intranet?

How can I become a rogue employee
? I want to set up an unauthorized hotspot in my office, that "circumvents" the IT policy, by wirelessly linking my iBook to the all-PC network.

My tiny office has 9 people crowded around 4 crummy Dell desktops. We've invested in our own personal laptops: 3 Vaios, 2 Thinkpads, and me with an iBook. The trouble is none of us are allowed access to the work intranet. The IT department are adamant that only authorized Dell laptops can be configured to access the network.
When I plug my Airport Express in, it seems to think it's connected to the intranet, but it won't pass any data. Does anyone have any tips or resources to help me "configure" it, to allow us all untrammeled access?
