I think the usual solution is to make sure that you don't have to do a
DNS lookup to find your hostname (localhost, or whatever). Win98
should have a hosts file, perhaps called hosts.sam somewhere in the
Windows directory. Rename it to 'hosts', if needed, and then edit it
so that localhost is tied to address

If you've already tried and it still wants to dial up, then
you may have to stick in a dummy network card (there may even be an
option to load the drivers for a virtual card, but not install any
