hardware address conflict with 92.168.0.1

I'm trying to share ADSL broadband access on a six workstation Win98se / TX100 network.
Five of the six PCs work fine. The last one fails because: "The system has detected a conflict for IP address 192.168.0.1 with the system having hardware address 00:50:BA:99:B0:10"
Any obvious things to do first to resolve this conflict please? I don't know where to start !
Many thanks.

The failing machine seems to have the IP 192.168.0.1. This address is already taken by a system having the MAC (hardware) address 00:50:BA:99:B0:10 which ought to be another system on your LAN. Perhaps your router/gateway, it is not uncommon for those to be set to the .1 address. Check the TCP/IP properties of the failing machine and set another address.

I'm grateful for the response.
Now I need to look up how to change the TCP/IP properties.
Now, where did I shelve that Windows98 tome ...?

Ah.. hehe, things rarely stay where you think you put them. If you choose ControlPanel - Network applet - Configuration and highlight the TCP/IP protocol you can then choose Properties. You'll get a box with a lot of settings possibilities for TCP/IP.
