Your welcome...

I'm not a plumber either...but know bits/pieces. In some locales, a drain can be up to 6 feet from the vent...so if you had shower with in 6 feet of the vented lav, it works for the shower too. In fact I did this in my last house and it works fine.

BUT you would want to ask specifics like that of you local code officials...
