is either one of them win98 Second edition? ICS comes with se as a standard, and it is addeable by choosing add/remove programs : add windows components.  Otherwise then that if you have the first win98, you have to get a proxy server of sorts.

BTW there is a way to setup win98 first edition as a router, but it is very unstable.

To take advantage of ICS, you need only run Windows 98 Second Edition on one computer in your home. This computer, referred to as the host computer, is also the only machine that connects directly to the Internet. It automatically assigns a unique Internet protocol (IP) address to the other networked computers, and then relays data between those computers and the various servers on the Internet. The other PCs simply need a TCP/IP driver and a compatible network interface device; they may run Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, or Windows NT® operating system.

It will cost you $20.00 to upgrade your Windows98 to SE.
