You will need a small hub or switch to connet the server and workstations to. Also connect the switch to the one ethernet interface of the router and the modem to the other.

You will need to configure NAT on the router to access the internet.
A basic configuration will look something like this.


interface ethernet 0                                     <---inside interface
ip address  192.168.1.1    255.255.255.0
ip nat inside

interface ethernet 1                                                                  <--- outside interface
ip address <address and mask asigne by ISP>
ip nat outside


access-list 1 permit  192.168.1.0   0.0.0.255                             <--- access list defining internal network to NAT

ip nat inside source list 1 interface ethernet 1 overload
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.10  25  ethernet 1  25    <--- port forwarding for SMTP traffic - assuming 192.168.1.10 is SMTP server adress

ip route 0.0.0.0  0.0.0.0  ethernet 1                                           < --- default route

the ip address for the ISP is going to be dynamic

That's not a problem.

On your outside interface, you just configure the line:
ip address dhcp

Will get IP address from cable provider. The port forwarding and NAT configuration I gave above is not bound to the IP address, but to the outside interface (ethernet 1).
