Hi. I just got a new computer with windows vista and i have a older one with XP. I want to setup Internet Connection Sharing but I have no idea how. Could someone please help?

This is what i have:
On my vista computer i have a wireless USB adapter which i use to connect to my modem. And i have a Ethernet adapter which connects to my XP computer.

Once both machines are connected to the network through a router and the router is connected to the cable/DSL modem, the internet should be available.
