The latest versions of GNU Mach support some wireless devices though
I've never tried that myself. What you need is a supported device. Once
you got that, you setup pfinet the usual way.

If your laptop runs Linux, you can use it as a gateway, yes. Basically,
you need to do these few steps :
setup the network on the laptop<->desktop segment (e.g. using ifconfig).
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Maybe you'll need a bit of tweaking but this should work fine for most
cases. Good luck.
