Hi Tim,

How are you assigning IP addresses?  If you are doing it manually, make
sure that you are giving the Win98 machine a valid IP on the same subnet
as the Debian machine.  If the Win98 machine is set to dhcp then unless
the Debian machine is a dhcp server, the Win98 machine will set it's IP
to something in the 169. range.

Hope that helps.
