Default network problem

m trying to network two pcs. one win xp is host and the other win 98. i'm using a linksys2.4 ghz wireless g broadband router. i've followed the software directions step by step for the host pc and there was no problem. got to finish setup and it told me all is well. i used the win xp disk to set up the other pc, and only got to the place i was told i was missing hardware. to install the hardware and then run the wizard again. i have the wireless card in the client pc and it is recognized in system information . there is also an ethernet card in the pc. what am i missing? i've never networked before
