I don't know of any reason why the VPN wouldn't work using the NIC. Can you ping the VPN server's IP address across both the dial-up and broadband connections? If not, then you've got a connectivity problem that's not related to the VPN. If you can ping it from both, double check the bindings and other configuration settings in the network properties of the Windows 98 system.
