I can't connect to my friends laptop(Win XP) wirelessly...
No network or terminal is found..
His laptop found mine though...Is there any configuration I have to change/make?
What should I do if I want to share Internet connection from his laptop.

After enabling file sharing on the Mac, on the Finder menu bar, click Go, then Connect to Server. In the "Server address" field, enter "smb://<name of PC you want to connect to>" without the quotes, click Connect; enter name and password, select shared folder to open. It will then appear on your desktop and/or the left pane of the Finder window.
