Configure your internet connection on the server. make sure you can connect to the internet on the server.

then go to the properties of your internet connection-->Advanced-->there you will find something saying share this internet connection or ICS, click the check box and disable the dial on demand.

then go to your clients machine and configure their TCP/IP settings as follows:
Ip address: your network address/or obtain automatically if using DHCP
subnet mask: default
gateway:Ip address of the server having internet connection
Dns server: Ip of the server having Internet connection
Secondry DNS server: ip of your ISP's DNS server

and you are done .

rest u can visit this link for detail and more clear instructions.

I would use his solution above, but also turn off/remove DNS and DHCP on the server, it is also recommended not to run ICS on a W2k domain controller.


MS on ICS sharing W2k server connections:
IMPORTANT: You should not use this feature on a computer running DNS server or DHCP server or a Windows domain controller. When you enable ICS, the network adapter connected to the home or small office network is given a new static IP address configuration. Existing TCP/IP connections on the CS computer are lost and need to be re-established.
