I have a win98 machine with cable modem that I am trying to share to linux.

I have 2 NICs in the win98 machine. One to the cable modem and one to my hub the linux box is connected to. The linux box can ping the win98(10.10.80.0) and itself(10.10.80.1). The win98 box can ping itself, but not the linux box. When trying to ping win98=>linux the hub light flashes and the RX packets increase shown by ifconfig, however, all I get is request timed out in win98.

Any ideas?

You can't use the first and last IP of any network (they're broadcast addresses). Assuming you used a netmask of 255.255.255.0 for your internal network, the range of valid IP's for that network is 10.10.80.1-10.10.80.254.

Set the IP of the windows box to be 10.10.80.2 and you'll be able to ping between the two boxes.
