    you need a crossover cable between your linux box and your w98 box
    otherwise your tx will go to your tx as opposed to your rx. in other
    words, both machines will be talking but neither listening. if you
    use a crossover cable, you don't need a hub or switch to make this
    work.

    on linux, enable forwarding (routing) between interfaces, and
    configure your inside interface like this (outside will use DHCP from
    ISP):

    ifconfig 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

    and configure your w98 interface with an ip address of 192.168.0.2
    subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and with a gateway of 192.168.0.1. it can
    use the DNS servers from your ISP.

    ping each computer from the other to ensure IP connectivity. then,
    from w98, ping a server (using IP address) on the internet that you
    know isn't quenching ICMP echo's. if this works, ping same server
    using DNS name (host.domain.com). if these work, you are good to go.

    good luck
