You need to add 'proxyarp' to your /etc/ppp/options(.ttyS**) file on the
gateway. Have a read of the PPP HOWTO, and some of the articles in Linux
Gazette for lots more info on setting these up.

Also, you may want to add 'ms-dns' and 'ms-wins' if you want to
autoconfigure the 98 client for name lookups and resolving Samba addresses.
