If your service provider will give you 4 IP addresses, then by configuring your 4 systems to use the one with the cable modem as a router, you'll be all set.

More likely, they'll only give you 1 IP address per cable modem.  There isn't a *simple* way to handle this, but take a look at the Linux IP-Masquerade mini HOWTO.  Basically, you'll set up the systems on your ethernet to use the 10.0.0 network, configure the system with the cable modem to talk to both networks, but have it masquerade as the one IP address for all the traffic from your other systems.

What do you want a system to use a phone line for?  If one of the three systems without the cable modem has a phone modem in it, that shouldn't be a problem at all.

Okay, so in that case the phone modem is transparent to everything on your local net.  Good luck with it!

Found out yesterday that a external cable modem is coming out, and they are to set it up for network capable with its own ip. Do u think then that it we could use each our own modem to send with it like that?

Probably, if they'll allow it, but my cable IP provider charges extra for that.
