iMac Airport to WRT54g challenge

    Ok, here's what I have:

    An iMac 2009 sporting a built in Airport Extreme card, connected to a DSL modem via Ethernet and using PPPoE. Note that I am unable to use Airport Utility as the Airport Extreme is not a base station. The iMac Airport (wireless network) is configured to share my internet connection from the DSL modem (ethernet).

    I have a TV and DVD player which have ethernet ports are far enough away from the DSL modem as to make a wired router/switch impractical.

    I also am the proud owner of a Linksys WRT54G v2.0 wireless router which I've flashed with the dd-wrt vintage mini software.

    I want to connect the WRT54G router, wirelessly, to the iMac Airport signal. I then want to transmit this internet connection, through the wired router ports on the WRT54G, to the TV and DVD player. I believe this what is meant by Bridging/Repeater mode.

    Again, here is a graphic of what I'd like to accomplish:

    DSL Modem--->(Ethernet/PPPoE)--->iMac---->(wireless via Airport)--->WRT54G--->(Ethernet)--->TV/DVD

    There is extremely limited documentation which I can find on this subject, as everything Airport Extreme assumes you are using the airport base station and Airport Utility. As you can tell I am a novice so please provide a basic step by step if you are familiar.
