 Dual boot networked to dual boot
I have two dual boot machines. They are already networked when both
machines are running Win98. I want to network them when one is running
linux and the other is running Win98. I also want to network them when
they are both running linux.

Does one of these machines have to be set up as a server and the other a
workstation?

Linux doesn't care what you call the machine, it's either part of the
subnet or not.  If it is, then there are configuration files you need to
alter to offer NFS mount points, samba mounting etc.  But just to
network, no.

So in this case I could install linux as a workstation on both machines
and network them together. Would I still be be able to connect to an
ISP?

What do you mean by "as a workstation"?

During the install of RedHat one of the dialog boxes asks if you want to
install linux as a workstation, server, or custom. I assumed that
workstation was a minimum install, server was everything, and custom was
anything inbetween.

Note:  Installing RedHat with the server option reformats everything on all of
your hard drives.  Bye-bye win98 partition!
Do a custon install.  It's a better experience, and with RedHat, it's not much
of a headache.
Be warry of disk partioning if you haven't done much of it, though.
