I presume you're using a router, the router actually has the DSL connection, all the computers and the router form a network. You have to download the Network Installation Wizard to a floppy from any of the XP machines and run it on the 98 machine. However some versions of 98 have icwoobe.exe, which you can run directly to connect you to a network. Just use the search function to find it and open it.

Make sure any firewalls you have allow access to your network.
