I will be attempting to set up a small network (3 machines). Two are PCs with Win98 and one new Mac.  How can I get these three machines to see each other? I know how to set up the PCs to see each other but, from what I can tell, MS removed the Appletalk protocol from Win98.  I have not setup a Mac on a PC network before, only maintaned one that hooked to NT.

You will need either a copy of Dave for the mac or PCMacLAN for the PC. They can be found at www.versiontracker.com ...All those programs do is enable the protocols of the opposite machine on the local machine. Then its just a matter of connecting all the machines to an ethernet hub. Get the 2 PCs to talk to eachother first, then install dave on the mac and youre off. Since youre familiar with the PC networking dave will offer some familiar options.

Here are some other links that you might find helpful either now or in the future. The first one is especially relevand right now. The second one is their general page.
