I have a Windows 98 laptop that will have a dial up connection to the Internet.  Are there any free firewall programs still available for windows 98?  If not, are there any good commercial products that I can buy that will give me firewall protection for Windows 98?

if you are on a dial up connection, you do not need a firewall.

Try these:

R-Firewall - http://www.r-firewall.com/ 
SoftPerfect Personal Firewall - http://www.softperfect.com/products/firewall/

both will are free and will work on win9x systems. If you're looking for a personal recommendation, I'd say go with R-Firewall.

i would go with a smoothwall. You can download the iso, then install it on a box with 2 nics. it also has dmz and vpn support. it's built off a hardened linux kernal and i've got a couple of them in production. These things are great and i highly recommend using.
