You've missed some additional steps:
- add the IP address of your win98 server to /etc/hosts
- add this info to /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver <ipadress of win98 box>
With the command you tell Linux to connect via win98. 
route add default gw <ipadress of win98 box> eth0

PS this is all from memory, so I don't know if the info is 
complete/correct. But this is how I got it to work. If it doesn't help, 
you should try searching the mailinglist (blfs-support, where this 
question belongs btw), that's how I got the info.
