I have three pc's in fairly close proximity.
One is a Win98 machine. The other 2 are Win95.
I want to be able to file-share between them. Each has a network card already installed with RJ45 connections only on them.
What are the steps to network all 3.

you will need to get a little HUB (4 connection) to plug them in... then add the networking component in your OS (if it is not already installed), add file and print sharing on each machine, give them each a unique name. For networking protocol I take netbeui (it is easiest). Create shares on the dirs/printers you want to share. That should about cover it...

when addressing the machines, since they don't have IP addresses how do are they called or refered to? or do the drives and filesystems just showup as additional drives and devices?

If you use netbeui you don't have to worry about IP addresses... (If you do want to set up TCP/IP protocol you will have to provide IP -adresses for each machine and a subnet.) Once setup the PC should be visible in the network neigbourhoud and when you click on them the created shares should be visible.
