If you put two network cards into a computer you will probably confuse yourself trying to program them properly, especially with MyEnemy.

Buy a network card for the Windows 98 PC and buy a broadband router. Plug both PCs into the broadband router, and plug the router into the DSL modem. Done.

ICS is more trouble than it's worth nowadays. racraft is right... Router is the way to go. One network card per computer and typical home router setup is so simple that for most routers, you just plug it in and it works without extra configuration.

It's possible that your DSL modem could already be acting as a router (many do have that built-in functionality). What is the model of your DSL modem? You could check with the manufacturer or your DSL provider. If it is already a router, then you just need an ethernet switch.

if the dsl modem is also a router (many are these days) then it probably has 4 lan ports, of which 1 is being used by the 1st computer. put a network card in the 2nd computer, plug it in an empty port on the router, and surf away!
