No, other than the Linux box directly connected to the NT network, they 
have to have an internal net IP (192.168.1.*)

Yes, all of 205.211.*.*

RH machine #1 is acting as the go-between for RH #2 and Win98se box to the 
NT network, not a PDC or a BDC at all.
Possibly a WINS proxy and DNS proxy, but that's it.

It's a hell of a lot easier to share the one 100 Mbit connection to the NT 
network properly across Linux than it is with Win98se, that's why.
I've only got the ONE connection (wall socket) for 3 machines, and can't 
use a hub - not allowed in any way.
And Win98se's connection sharing is weak and would bog down my Win98se 
machine, which is where I do most of my work.
