A google search turned this up:

It applies to DSL, but you may be able to adapt it to your situation. Also, here on LQ:

I'm relatively sure you need to have Win98SE (not just Win98) in order to do connection sharing. If not, you may need to purchase a service pack or something.

how to enable ICS in Win 98:

go to control panel
dbl click on add/remove programs
click on windows setup tab
highlight communications
click details
in the details window make sure that internet connection sharing
is checked
if not, check it, click ok and restart.

if you are wanting to make the linux box the primary machine, follow the links that wapcaplet submitted
