You can do it a couple of different ways.

Since you are in the wireless group, let's look at the ways in wireless.
1. Purchase Wireless adapters for each (verify that there are Win98 drivers)
and configure them for peer to peer/ad hoc networking.
2. Purchase a WAP and Wireless adapters for each (again make sure that Win98
drives are available) and configure them both to use the WAP.
