You can't.

You will need some sort of router to accomplish what you need. This could be done by hooking up one PC to the adsl modem and then putting another network card in that PC and then hooking a crossover cable from that PC to the second PC and then enabling Internet connection sharing on first PC. You will need to manually set the IP's on the second card of the first PC and the second PC to private addresses. IMHO, much easier to have a router with a built in switch.
