      On the win 98 machine, go to control panel, add/remove programs, windows set up, internet tools, details. click internet sharing and follow prompts. Windows help and troubleshooter will also help you get this sharing set up.

      Damn I wish Microsoft had internet sharing, nevermind.

      If you hook 10 pc’s up to a standard dialup connection
      nobody is going to get anything done.

      This is the simple way to do it though. This way when
      you get tired of waiting you can go broadband.

      Buy a SMC7004ABR. Hook your external dial-up
      modem to the rs-232 port and configure the SMC.

      This is a router/gateway/dhcp server/firewall. It can be
      used with cable and dsl modems. It has a print server
      and of course a RS-232 port for a dial up 56k or isdn
      modem.

      Good Luck
