I think is posible

I think that internet connection will be posible, but I don't know if you can connect to your win98se via a seria/parallel port to the internet.

Try with an ethernet card (maybe pcmcia card for ethernet) , a cross cable and set yout gateway on your linux box the ip number of win98se station.

I'm not sure that you can connect your laptop via serial/parallel port to internet and if that will be posible , will be too slow for an internet connection.

Regards.
