Hi
you will nedd to get a router (linksys makes a good one ) and tou will have to use TCP/IP and get rid of netbeui. (netbeui is not routeable)the router can act as a dhcp server and give all your computers an IP address. IT is not that hard to set up it will come with instructions

A router is needed for your project. I would recommend a company named Linksys. Their routers are designed for the small user and are inexpensive and reliable. This business is for home networking. They come with all the instructions and documentatiopn you need.
They have excellent tech support.

Also at this website is excellent documentation on networks if you are interested.

A Cable/DSL router is your best bet and also the easiest to network all 3 PC's on one DSL line. There are a few good and inexpensive routers that are available in the market today. Netgear and Linksys are two name brands that are good. If you want to make a router with more control and get some experience in administering your network, you can make a Linux box and add 2 nic cards to it and a hub but this will take some time and learning.

You have a number of options.

1) Use Windows 98 ICS.
2) Use a third party progrma such as Sygate or Wingate.
3) Use a hardware router.

In all cases you will need to install and configure TCP/IP.
