I have a 2008 white macbook running 10.6.8


I have a 2004 lamshade G4 800mhz imac running 10.4.11


I do not have a wireless card for the imac and it is no where near my router.


Is there any way to connect the imac to the macbook with an ethernet cable and use the macbooks internet on the imac? If so, can you give me the step by step directions?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
