    Networking XP pro PC with Vista PC

    hello,

    I am about to purchase a windows vista home premium system, but vista is WAY too expensive to buy another two copies for my laptop and other PC. Even if it is just an OEM upgrade. So, is it possible to network a windows XP pro computer and win XP pro laptop with a vista premium PC via a Belkin Wireless router (infrastructure network)?

    Thanks in advance!
