Question network bridge from Dell running Fedora 8 to laptop running Vista

The title pretty much explains itself. My girlfriend has two computers. One of them is an old Dell Desktop. She got fed up with windows and I installed Fedora 8. The other is a laptop running Vista. In my room I have two machines, a mac G5 and a four core I built myself. I bridged the connection to go from the wall into the G5 and then out again into the four core. I've heard there is a way to do it in Fedora 8 but I have no idea where to even begin. Any help would be appreciated.

Why not just buy wireless 4 port router/swtich?

I have one. They aren't allowed on campus. We had one set up, we set it to clone the mac address. But, so many people started doing it, they've picked up on the increase in activity. They know what's going on but they have no way to prove it. Anyway, I just figured it would be easier to bridge the connection for now. If you have any ideas about how to hide the router that would be great too. The reason we got the router was for the wireless so she could move about the room instead of being tethered to the desk or the bed. Our dorms also have a living room and she would like to go out there as well. Again, any help would be appreciated.
