Setup Internet connection sharing on one of the 98 boxes, and have the other boxes get their ip information from it. the modem and phone line would need to be on the 98 box.

I would use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). The following web site has a very good step by step tutorial and some troubleshooting steps if the system does not work the first time (which is not uncommon)

When this works it works well. I am running Windows 2000 Pro with ICS and I have Windows Me and Windows 98 connected together at my house.

Well, there are so many ways to do this.
The best method is to have some old 386 or 486 box with two NICs and a floppy. Then you can install a routing program on a single floppy disc. There are many such programs.
The second way is to install somerouting program on the windows PC which you want to be a Internet gateway. The programs that do this the best are WinGate and WinRoute. You can have them form download.com.
The way with Internet Connection Sharing is one of the easiest way, but youcan not configure it to be secure, and sometimes there are problems with some of the workstations on your LAN.
So if you want to have a good gateway find some old 386 box and I'll show you how to configure it, otherwise install WinGate or WinRoute.
If you need to know how to do this just write me.
Hope this helps.
