Internet connection sharing in win98


Internet connection sharing in win98


We have recently had broadband installed at home, and i want to share the connection with my brother whose pc is in the same room. I know how to do this with win xp, however i am having problems setting up in windows 98. The modem goes into my PC (i have win xp), and i have a cable going into his PC (running win 98 ). Can someone explain what i need to do to get this working? In XP i just used the connection wizard when i have had to do this before, however it seems more tricky with 98! Thanks.
