access internet via dial up modem, other computer via ethernet card

  1. Hi,

    I have a PC with windows 98 (1st edition) installed.
    On that one I want to keep using my dial in modem for
    internet acess.

    However, I also have an ethernet card in the PC to connect
    to other computers.

    In the internet explorer options menu,
    I keep using the dial up modem (not the local network).

    Now, If I want to access the other PC
    (connected via ethernet cable)
    [ e.g. http://192.168.123.254/ ]
    [ or ftp 192.168.123.254 ]
    [ on the LOCAL network ]
    then I still get a dial in message box asking for password.

    How can I indicate that windows should NOT use the dial in
    modem for certain IP- adresses?

    Thanks,

    Patrick Brouckxon.
