Actually I have WinXP Home, and bridging works just fine. It's just less obvious than in Pro. If you Ctrl-select both connections and then right-click, you still get Bridging Connections as an option.

Thanks Lars - I *could* but I didn't tell the whole story
  - that's actually my daughter's laptop that I was using

was when I had learned the ins and outs then to use it on
mine.  Mine unfortunately runs xp home (I know, stupid decision)
which I gather won't do the bridging.

so still stuck.
