Connecting Internet from Vista laptop thro XP desktop

I am having internet connected to my Desktop with Win XP. Internet mode is Wireless Data Card that can be inserted into USB port.
Now I have a laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium. I was able to connect both of them using ethernet cross over cable and successfully enabled file sharing through Local Area Network.
But I want to access Internet from the laptop. Is it possible?

FYI, when I typed ipconfig in cmd prompt in desktop,
PPP adapter High Speed Data:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 115.184.31.66
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.25
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 115.184.31.66

This is the internet ip I guess... And for File sharing I have enabled Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in Win XP with ipaddress as 192.168.0.1
And for Vista , I have IPv4 with ipadress as 192.168.0.2

Please let me know if you need any more questions. Thanks in advance.

I know this is the wrong forum still, but a cradle point router is perfect. I know a ton of people that use them with their 3G/4G data cards. Works like a charm.
