    probably some specific protocols that must be installed on 98 for this game but what type of network is ?

    I'm pretty sure the network needs some sort of IPX/SPX implementation as this had to be enabled on Tiberian Sun for network play. Also, check the network settings in Red Alert 2 (I think you can choose different settings like on TibSun...)

    hmm... okidoke... If you enable it, can you change network settings in-game?
