the question is do i have to set up an other server as a domain
controller ,to issue ip address's for the other two clients if
the extern netcard points to my router.

Never had problems with double NAT, if the ISA is setup correctly. Also for some DSL nets, you need a router as there must be a device between your telephone line and ISA. But this depends from your provider.

ISA has two NICs with two sub-nets, one internal, one between ISA and router. In your case, you can use the default 192.168.1.x / 24 as external ISA subnet and 192.168.2.x /24 as internal.
Since you have ISA server u can get rid of the router. if you double nat you will just run into problems. U need to exclude the router, plug your modem into your external nic ( apply the external ip address) and then isa will take care of the routing. make sure you set up dhcp on the isa server.
Double nat can cuase problems with connections to other hosts. such as TCP connections, like games or ssl. You might notice some problems later on down the road, just keep your eyes open for it
If the ISP gave you the router then you need to call them and tell them to put the router in bridge mode. Then for your external nic card put in the If you already have a router in place then take it out and connect your modem to your external nic If you are double nating how do you intend on hosting things on your end? such as email, ftp, http or any gaming? this is just going to cause problems..just do it the right way.
