    I think it's probably best to set up the server as a gateway doing NAT. Set up your LAN using private address space IP addresses (192.168.n.n) and make the windows 2000 server your default gateway.

    I'm no expert on windows 2000 server, but it should be possible to have it act as a firewall (no, really!) by port filtering, and you should be able to make it do dial-on-demand.

    I know you can do this real easy from Linux because that's how my system was configured a few years ago when I still used analogue signals to carry data.

    If proves too difficult to do on win2k, then how about considering setting up the modem on your Linux PC and connecting to the internet for all your stuff through that?
