Do you have any router that connects to the Desktop?? If you
have a static IP address on the Desktop then you will have to
enter the same settings on your laptop and use only one of
the both computers to connect, If you have dynamic Ip
addressing then you can connect to your laptop directly and
start using the internet.

To check if your desktop uses Static or Dynamic address
then( Assuming you are using windows XP) go to network
connections and right click on the "Local Area Connection"
and then select tcp/ip and select properties and check if the
dynamically obtain IP address or Use following IP address is
selected, Make sure even your DNS is automatically
obtained, or else you will have to enter the same settings in
your laptop.

FYI: If you want to use both of your systems together without
switching from one another then you can install a wireless

If you don't have a router (you ought to get one maybe) then either read up on proxy applications like Microsoft ICS or Analogx's free proxy to share internet.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
