It sounds like ICS isn't configured correctly. If the Win98 system has ICS configured, its LAN IP address should always be 192.168.1.1. Try disabling and re-enabling ICS -- it should warn you that it?s going to statically configure the IP address to 192.168.1.1. Then, reboot the Windows 2000 system and make sure it gets a 192.168.1.x address.
