I think that PCMacLan will allow you to use File Sharing over TCP/IP from your Mac. You could also use DAVE and File Sharing on the PC side. Both would require that you have a static IP address on your PC, and that your firewall at work will allow the connection.

A better soloution may be NetPresenz, a fully featured FTP server which you can access with any FTP client from the W98 machine.

NetPresenz is available from

Also note that you can download files from it using the built-in websharing. Just place all you want to access in your websharing directory, start websharing and that's it - you can downnload it via a webbrowser. Of course, this means that _anyone_ that knows your IP can access the data.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
