I asume that your network is working otherwise. I also assume that the Me machine the proxy server (the one you will use to connect to the ISP). When you set it up, it should have asked you if you wanted to create a setup disk (floppy) for the Win98 computer. You should allow it to create the disk, then put the floppy in the '98 machine and run the network setup program that was created on it.

Also, make sure that Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is not installed on the client ('98) machine. If it is, you will have to uninstall it and then use the floppy.
