It is a phone-line modem that is plugged into a USB port. I guess that I wont be able to use it through the switch. Thank you....

    Well, not directly, no. But you could make the PC that is using the modem your "router" and your other LAN machines could use it to get out on the internet. In this case, I guess the answer to your original question about requiring a server would be "yes". Sort of.

    You could try one of the Linux Router as a Distro options - there's a great list here.

    Or you could try to just follow a howto a customize one yourself with your existing distro. Google for Linux gateway or Linux router and off you go.
