First, as a basic answer - you install the second card as you would the first, you should see it listed among the network cards as normal, once installed.

Here's the but...

To the best of my knowledge, you cannot share the same local IP address across 2 NICs under Win98 or ME, each NIC will have to have its own IP address e.g. 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.

However, the same IP address can be shared across 2 different cards under NT and/or Win2k (or so I have been told).

I don't know your reasons for wanting to do it this way, but it may be easier to get a 10mb or 10/100mb hub or switch.

I agree - unless you want the 'middle' machine to act as some sort of filter/router between the two machines (for experiments or something), do yourself a favor and get a cheapo hub or switch.

you can configure your NIC's with two IP address (eth0 as 192.168.0.1 and eth1 as 192.168.0.2) on the linux box, then you config the IP of the win98 box (connected on eth0) to be 192.168.0.3 with gateway 192.168.0.1 and the IP of winME box (connected to eth1) to be 192.168.0.4 with gateway 192.168.0.2, then on the linux box you add a simple route between the NIC's and enable IP-Forwarding

route add 192.168.0.3 gw 192.168.0.1
route add 192.168.0.4 gw 192.168.0.2

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

as far as I know no matter the IP of the NIC's, if the IP-Forwarding is active you can reach the linux box with either of the IP's (192.168.0.1-2)
