Internet Connection Sharing - 98 & XP

I'm compiling some information for someone in order for them to connect a laptop to their Windows 98 PC using Internet Connection Sharing. The 98 desktop would obviously need to be the host. This is 98 SE so there will be no problems.

The Internet connection is broadband (cable modem) and is through a network card.

I found some information on setting up ICS in Windows 98 (host computer) at annoyances.org and it mentions the NetBEUI protocol as well as TCP/IP. Is this necessary or will it work with just TCP/IP?

Here is the exact link: click here. Does anyone know a (better?) variation of this that.

All I really know is that the host computer needs to have its IP address set to 192.168.0.1, but I don't know how the XP client will get its IP address automatically. As you can probably tell, the network is not yet set up, and I have only ever set up ICS using Windows 2000 server and DHCP etc.

Sorry.....forget it. If I'd read on a bit I would have answered my own question.
