Question On The An-124/An-225/C-5

Many of you know how the above aircraft and others have four nosewheels. Well, I was wondering, how are these nosewheels steered? Are they on two oleos in pairs of two, on one oleo, or are they locked forward? This has been bugging me for a few days now and I would appreciate an answer.

Assuming that "oleo" means strut or the like, then I believe the C5 is on one oleo (all 4 wheels turn together), while the Antonovs have two oleos, in pairs of two.

Vik,
Thank you for your answer, I am surprised that it took 141 views to get an answer! But, at least someone finally was able to answer my question on the 4-wheel nosegear.
