Connecting from a network to a remote system

I have 4 computers on a peer to peer network (All XP)
All are connected to broadband.
On one computer there are 2 network cards one is
connected to our network and the other
is connected to an isdn router, this allows our part
ordering software to connect to our supplier and place part
orders.
What we want to do is install this part ordering software
on all the computers to allow all of them to place orders.

So I take it I would disconnect the ISDN router from the
current computer and plug it directly into the local network
switch to allow all the computers access.
But how do i get the other computers to recognise/connect to it ?
I have tried using route add on the other pc's but it won't accept addresses

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

You have to define the static route at your main gateway.  

Let's assume:
Workstations - IP: 192.168.1.10-192.168.1.14, Subnet: 255.255.255.0, Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Internet Gateway - IP - 192.168.1.1
ISDN Gateway - 192.168.1.2
Network on the other end of the ISDN gateway - 10.1.1.x  255.0.0.0

1. Connect the ISDN router to the LAN switch/hub
2. At the Internet Gateway (192.168.1.1) add a static route to the 10.1.1.x 255.0.0.0 network with a gateway of 192.168.1.2
If the main gateway is a Cisco the comand would look like this:

ip route 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 192.168.1.2

Hi thanks for your reply.
Going by your example what if the ISDN Gateway is 100.192.167.1

The ISDN router will need a LAN IP which is on the same subnet as the rest of the computers on your LAN.  If for example the PCs are on the 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 subnet then the ISDN router should have a LAN IP of 192.168.1.x.  If the ISDN router is on a different network than the rest of your PCs then you will either have to change it's LAN IP to match your network or if your Internet Gateway supports it you can dual address the LAN side of that and give it a second IP like 100.192.167.2.

You also need to know what network is on the other side of that ISDN gateway.  This will be the network that you are routing traffic to.
