Can a 98 box connect to another computer not on the same net?

Can win98se connect to another computer using the UNC path or the IP? I tried in the find>computer> and typed in the ip address, but it came up with nothing. While if i just type in the name of the computer it works. Yes it is on the same network, the 98 box has TCP/IP, netbui installed. There's also a win2k on the same network, it can access other computers fine with either UNC or IP, just not the 98. I was wondering because I need to connect to another PC using the IP, only the name won't work (i.e boxen, instead of boxen.box.net or x.x.x.x)
