Is there a way I can plug my 17" into a lan cable, and share the internet access with a larger group of wireless laptops?

Yes. Just use "internet sharing" under the sharing control panel in OS X.

I've done this...but only 1 Windoze PC connected to my PB 17" similar to what ICruise described. It worked like a charm!
PB.17.1Ghz - iPod.10G
