ok here is the scoop!

I have a win98 box that I use to dial in to my provider.
I also have a mac that I want to be able to share the internet connection. Also I know very little about networking.

No problem. Upgrade your Win98 to Win98SE and use Internet Connection Sharing..

lrmoore is the simplest solution. If for any reason you don't want to upgrade, you can use 3rd-party tools: Wingate, InternetShare and alike.

Whichever you choose, you must make sure that W98 and Mac can 'talk'. For that, they need a common protocol. In this case - TCP/IP.

Yes, you can. But, why would you want to do that? That would tie up two telephone lines and will reduce the speed between Mac and PC dramatically.

The connection between PC and Mac would require a phone line, for one to dial the other.

You should use network cards, instead.
