networking with win98..cant use internet sharing

  pcgal 09:25 05 Nov 2003


I've networked a win98 machine to my xp home network and its up and running sharing files no problem.
I'm trying to access the internet through the host so I've attempted to install internet connection sharing but the following message appears......"Your network configuration is not complete.Please install your network hardware before installing internet connection sharing."
Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong...The network hardware must be installed or I wouldnt be communicating with the other computers on my network. Thanks

This tends to hapen when you try to install ICS on both the machines. You only install it one host machine.
