|If it were me, I'd connect the printer to a Win 7 computer and share it.|
For info on the correct way to install a printer on most windows based computers, click on my name above in my response and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Installing a Network Printer: version 2"
You might run through the guide and try installing the printer on a Win 7 box before moving the printer. But it's probably a good time to move the printer and get rid of the Win98 box.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
