Instead of answering your question, I am going to make a suggestion:

Get a cheap Linksys/D-Link/Netgear/US-R router/firewall.  connect your ADSL modem to the "WAN" port, and the other 3 computers to the LAN side of the router.  Enable DHCP on the clients (or statically set the IP on the server, setup the DNS to forward external DNS requests to your ISP's DNS server), and you're done.

You can also user Routing and Remote Access to use your server as a router.  However, it's less secure, use up more resources on your server, and frankly just doesn't work as well.
