Just go to Fry's or CompUSA or something and buy a DSL/Cable router.  They typically cost anywhere between 15 to $40.  If you like wireless, then they are a little bit more expansive (TYPICALLY, you can still find bargain deals for these).

All you need is the router and maybe 1 or 2 extra Ethernet cable and that's it!!

The instruction should be given by the hardware manufacturer.  It's basically:

1.  Plug one end of Ethernet cable to the Cable Modem's Etherenet jack, the other end the the WAN port of the router.

2.  Plug connect a computer's ethernet to one of the router's LAN interface.

3.  (Maybe) restart the cable modem and then restart the router.  Finally, restart the computer.

And regarding the actual sharing of the computers, you will need to setup the same accounts on all systems for easy access, or you can set ACL's in the Security tab of the shared folder's properties.  Do not forget to actually share the folders and set the appropriate permissions there too.  ON the page above (Troubleshooting P2P) it will help you with the setup of these also.
