Are you using a crossover cable? If you're using a straight-through CAT5e cable directly, it wont work.

If straight-through, have you got a hub to test it via?

Can you perform the loop back test by pinging 127.0.0.1 with the cable unplugged??? This should test your device drivers.

Your connection should show up in the network folder though... :(
Try running the wizard again (and rebooting) if you had the wrong cable.

Regarding W98, thankfully I can't even remember what it looked like :)
