If your PC is running windows 98 adding networking compionents does not require any type of upgrade if you already have the Ethernet card in and the TCP/IP loaded.

Normally Harddrive upgrades are dependant upon HDD useage if your HDD is full then yes upgrade to a larger one. RAM is one of those things you can never have too much of (With Win 98 though you stop seeing the benifits at about 512 to 1 ghz) so if you have 512 don't do that upgrade. Ram will not all of a sudden make it so you can network your PC however.
