You can alway use private IP address in your network such as 172.16.1.0~255/24. You need to use NAT if you want to connect to Internet.

If your network would like to access the Internet, you can use the NAT/Router or setup a gateway computer described in the manual of Win98.
Private IP(not for accessing Internet):
192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255 is one of the possibilities.

You can, arguably, use ANY properly setup IP address scheme, including those in use by other organisations. Or you can use one of the "private" address spaces. In any case you will need to apply address translation. Your router and/or firewall should be able to handle this.

Then you only need to devise a scheme for your local network. You say you have 8 workstations. I would then setup a subnet with 16 addresses (has to be a power of '2', and this gives you 14 usable addresses). For example:

Network: 192.168.23.80, subnet mask: 255.255.255.240
Available addresses: 192.168.23.81 through 192.168.23.94 (same subnet mask)
Broadcast address: 192.168.23.95 (same subnet mask)

I also make a point of having my router's Ethernet address be either the first or last on the range of available addresses, and number my 'workstations' from the other end of the range. E.g., router would be 192.168.23.94, and PCs would be 192.168.23.81, ...82, ...83, etc. Server? mamybe tuck it up behind therouter at 192.168.23.93.

keep the netbeui installed, incase you have any legacy programs out there that dont' well/right with tcp/ip also go to tcp/ip first and if that works well then do ipx and see if that works.
