I need to utilize Internet Connection Sharing between a client machine (Windows 98 SE) connected to the multi-port LAN Adapter installed on a host machine (Windows XP) .  The XP box is connected to a one-port DSL modem via Yahoo ISP.

My plan is to enable ICS on both machines.  However, I am not certain whether the Yahoo DSL software is needed on the '98 machine.

Any detailed ideas?

Go to My Network Places and begin the Add Network Place wizard. (Also - Start->Programs->Accessories->Communications->Network Setup Wizard)
I believe there's a guide there to establish connection between the two devices along with the option to create a setup disk for the client.
