    My specific question:
    Freshly installed win98, after enabling the NIC and tcp/ip and setting the right workgroup, i get 'X Fatal Error. Cannot Read IP Configuration.' What can i do aboot this?

    Less specific, more important: Both comps on network running win98, using a linksys BEFSR4L ethernet router, one can access the web, the other can't. Any tips on where to fiddle with things? Both these comps were online before. The one that's not now had win98 reinstalled and i've not much idea what to do.

    umm... only because no one else has said anything (i'm definitely not the one to ask about this)... what does the "ipconfig" program say?

    Why did you have to reinstall ?was it a 'clean' install or a repair?
    You could always try a clean install with the NIC removed, then shutdown, install, restart and load the OEM drivers, failing that, install a long trousered OS
