Windows 2000 Server: Internet Setup

Right now I have a 2wire Homeportal (or maybe it's an officeportal, don't really know) connected to a switch, and a Windows 2000 server connected to the network.  What I want to do is disconect the home portal and connect a standard DSL modem directly to the server, and then connect the server to the switch.  Therefore, the server will be exposed to the internet and the clients will have to connect through the server to the internet.

In order to set this up, what do I need to do?  I probably need to configure NAT on the server (how do I do this?) and likely some sort of routing so that the server will forward the packets destined for the internet on to the modem.  How can I set this up?

I've made this question worth 500 points because I need the answer urgently!
