Assign internal settings to the NIC with the crossover cable.

I.E 10.0.0.1 into win98 and 10.0.0.2 into XP for the IP address.

Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 for both machines.

Default gateway into xp machine should be DSL routers IP address.

On the second NIC add the external IP settings given to you by your ISP for the DSL router.

The settings might look like this:

212.34.15.100  IP address
255.255.255.240  subnet mask
212.34.15.101  Default gateway

This default gateway (212.34.15.101) is the routers IP address. This address is the XP machine's default gateway.

Give it a whirl.

the wizard will work on 98 too. my scenario is XP pro upgraded from ME with crossover cable & 2 nics. 2nd machine is ME. XP set up connectivity from XP to ME machine (one way only). Ran wizard on ME machine & suddenly (as if by magic) had 2 way communication.
Cannot speak highly enough of XP and I'm fussy.

when you run the wizard on the 98 machine make sure you use the same workgroup name for both computers.
