What is the maximum number of PCs that can be setup to share one internet connection through WIN98SE's ICS?

If it is possible to do 3-4 or 5 machines, which is the best way to do it?

Thanks in advance

I do three computers i think the limit is how much bandwith does your modem have.   On the computers that you want to connect through your modem just tell tcp/ip for the network card to obtain ip address automaticly

Well, since the local college shares about 80 computers in just one lab times about 4-5 labs all on one T1 connection (W98) You should be able to set many systems depending on the bandwidth.
