    A buddy is thinking about sharing a DSL connection using two computers, a router, and Win98 First Edition, not SE. Will this work, or does he need some type of internet connection sharing software on both machines?

    That would be all you need if the router has a built in switch.

    W98 will work just fine with a broadband router, configuration is exactly the same as W98SE.

    So, he doesn't need any internet connection sharing software.....the router takes care of that. Is this right?

    Yep, for the typical router, all you have to do is configure TCP/IP for automatic IP and DNS addresses and browse away. :)
