Ironically you 98 boxes are safer on the net than your XP box. I keep a 98se vm with TeamViewer 5 installed just to mess with the tech support scammers, their tools don't work on it. I'm not saying it's secure but unless your a business your simply safe on the web, modern websites don't load correctly on firefox2 or ie6, and the drive by stuff targets xp/Vista/7/8/10.I keep backups of all my machines, full images of the entire boot drive.
If one gets trashed, I'll reload the backup.
I have 1 xp machine and 2 win7 machines on the net right now; I have never had issues.
I use file sharing, and am remoted into the XP machine right now, while it's transferring VHS tapes for me.
The Win 98 machines are not on a net facing network, but mostly because the don't like the Win7 machines, so it's easier to have them on a different net.
