Oh. One more thing. 127.0.0.1 is called the loob-back address in the
real world. Redmond may have copied the real world on this one, too. 

Hmm. Get out the google, search "loopback ms windows 98":

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/TechNet/prodtechnol/win98/support/troubles.asp

and clicking on the link to connectivity problems (or about half-way
down this page) mentions the loopback address, but doesn't mention how
to make sure it is 127.0.0.1, and properly associated with localhost.

Try again. At google again, search "localhost ms windows 98":

    http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win98/Q_10462121.html

This one says there is a file called "hosts" in your "windows" folder in
your system drive where the association should be.
