I think there is a way only if you have the DOS driver for your NIC. First share the directory of the remote win98 installer. On your local pc, map the shared folder (I can't give you the complete syntax on this, please check your manuals). then proceed with setup.

The answer above is correct, and also the other thing to think about is the Nic card must have the capabilities (ROM) to boot from the network, if they dont then you are left with the cd rom,floppy path.

Save your self some headaches. Temp a cd on the machine and install the OS.
