Installing Microsoft's Windows® 98 SE
Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Components

First, Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is part of Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows 2000. It is a feature that cannot be merely added to an existing version of Windows 98, you must upgrade to Windows 98 SE. If you have either version of Windows NT, you will need to upgrade to Windows 2000 Professional.

Before you begin the process of installing ICS:

Performing the Installation of ICS:

  1. If you are upgrading to Windows 98 Second Edition in order to install and use ICS, take a moment after the upgrade to make certain that your regular network functions exactly the same as it did before the upgrade. If it doesn't make any necessary adjustments before starting the installation of ICS.

  2. After you have installed or upgraded to Windows 98SE, select Start, Settings, Control Panel, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.

  3. Now Select the Windows Setup tab.

  4. Now double-click the Internet Tools icon, and insert a check-mark in the box for Internet Connection Sharing.

  5. Now click OK to close the Internet Tools window, and click OK again to close the Add/Remove Programs window.

  6. ICS will launch its setup wizard to guide you through the remainder of the process.
