On your Linux box you have to set up /etc/hosts to run apache. so you can pingQuote:> Netscape accepts plain IPs

domains on your localhost. Win98 dosnt know about this file.
You can either set up a hosts file on Win98 including all domains you need or set
up Linux as DNS.
If Linux is your DNS server you have to provide the IP to Win98 in
Network/Protocol IP/settings/DNS to the appropiate address.
After that Netscape should accept domains.
