You could try putting in an ethernet PCI card in your 98 machine if there are PCI slots available ... then plugging it directly into your wireless router via an available LAN port.

unless the old pc has usb or ethernet connectivity you are a bit screwed :p
usb pci cards are cheap enough, or just get an ethernet one (much better).
