You just need to run netcfg and enter the DNS and Default Gateway like the Windows machines.

You need to be more specific, though.  Win98 has no inherent routing capability.  What program are you using to serve the packets?  Or do raw internet packes come to your net via your downfeed, and the win98 box is just acting as a file server?  These are very differnt situations.
Win 98 DOES allow IP forwarding.  If neccessary, uninstall the network adapter and/or DUN on the 98 machine, and then re-install it/them.  

You will be prompted about IP forwarding  during the install of one of them.  I can't remember which one it is, sorry.  

If in doubt, ask about IP forwarding in one of the windows 98 areas.
