Internet Connection Sharing

I suggest using Internet Connection Sharing to do the specific setup you'd like.

However if you have a hardware firewall, that would be the better solution as the gateway and to keep the 2003 server for internal services only, try to limit its face on the internet.

actually do nothing but join the server to the same Worgroup

then share some folders.

what you don't want it to have the 3 computers use the server to get to the internet. If you turn off the server then no internet.

Server comes with 5 CALs so you don't need to do anything but install the software join common workgroup
