You really should set up the ME comp as the MICS host. It is a better version anyway and I am not sure that the 98 setup disk will be able to setup a ME comp.
Whydoncha' just upgrade that 98 to win2k, ME or even Whistler?

Hey guys, after installing Sygate and having a lot of problems I uninstalled it and tried using Windows 98 ICS. I ran the wizard on the host (Pavilion) and created a client disk for the Client computer (Presario running Windows ME). When I run the client disk on the other computers I get the following message A:\icsclset.exe is not a valid Win32 application. Guys I thank you all in advance for the help.
you can probably find it in a warez search engine like astalavista.box.sk or something like that. it is most definately out there. It is almost exactly like win2k, though so you might be disapointed. I have been using it on a amd k6-3 400 for a few weeks and no serious issues yet.
I would use caution in upgrading to Whistler without backing things up. Even though I haven't had any problems with any of the releases, I have talked to some that told me horror stories about their upgrading. I would recommend putting it on an isolated machine to play with and try all of your software on first.
Version 2410 is the latest and can be found in various different places.
I was getting frustrated with my Linksys router and took it down. By passing all hubs, i did a direct connect from my the cable modem to the PC. I have Win98SE on one machine and WinME on another. On the SE machine, i was able to use the "ICS" feature. I ran the wizard on both machines and it worked like a charm. If you have the 1st edition of Win98, I recommend you get the service pak to make it the 2nd Edition.
You don't need the wizard created client floppy to use ICS on the client.
If you already have an operating network, with tcp/ip installed and can ping all the computers in the network (all on the 192.168.0.x) that is all you need.
I get fine results by setting the clients to auto all. (every network setting is blank or auto (depending on the choice)
The only computer that needs an IP address is the host. (but when the others boot they should automatically have an address within the 192.168.0.x range)
Win2k was the hardest to get ICS running on, but it works.
Don't upgrade to ME if you have a good working 98SE. I don't have full hardware or software compatability with ME...in fact some software runs on 2k but not ME. I also get numerous lockups with IE on ME. (now if you have a multiple boot system like me then go ahead, but otherwise don't risk it)
