Get a D-Link or Linksys DSL router, and the installation should be pretty easy.  The routers come with 4 switched 10/100 Mbps ports and will take care of DHCP and NAT for you.

I just bought a Linksys 5 port switch to network 4 pcs.  Our DSL provider gave us the router which is a Cisco 675.  I also used a Hubbel 12 port patch panel.  This setup worked perfect.  If your using ADSL more than likely you wont be able to hook more than 4 pcs up.  Also you wont need to worry about the DHCP because your provider takes care of that side.  If you wanted to hook more than 4 up or your using SDSL you should use DHCP so the router can NAT out address for you.  I have done 20 or so of these installs and they can be a pain but once they are up and running it works great.  Let me know what type of DSL your using and who through I have software that will keep you running 24/7 if your ISP kicks you off due to inactivity.
