Default How do I get Windows XP to deal with 2 NICs?

OK, here's my problem. I am on a wireless network for internet (192.168.3.x) and then I have another NIC for my home network (192.168.0.x). The way the home network is set up is that our movie server downstairs is connected to the router along with my computer and my roommates computer. My roommate is sharing his internet connection so that the dowstairs computer can access the internet, and I have my own wireless NIC in my computer.

When I enable both connections, Windows XP only uses my roommate's shared internet connection, never seeming to notice I have my own.

My question is, how do I get windows to use my wireless NIC for internet without using my roommate's shared internet connection while still being able to share folders across our home network (192.168.0.x) between the 3 computers and NOT share folders on the wireless network (192.168.3.x)?

Let me know if I need to try to clear up the configuration, I know its kind of strange...

Thanks in advance!
