Well, clearly it's possible to network the W98 computer, so there's no reason it shouldn't work. Basically, you need to configure the TCP/IP under network properties to automatically obtain the IP and DNS addresses.

Here's a place to start in your quest to connect it. http://www.wown.info/j_helmig/guide.htm
