    Let me see if I get it...
    You have a Win 2k3 with 2 NICs, one connected to the LAN and the other one to the modem, right?
    If that's the case, did you set the NIC to share connection?

        You need to set the clients to use DHCP and then set the modem-connected NIC on the server for ICS. This will then automatically set the switch-connected NIC to 192.168.0.1 and make it a DHCP server for the clients.

            I was trying to paraphrase the steps you needed to take. Follow this article:

                  You should start from scratch because you shouldn't be manually setting up DHCP as ICS will do that for you. If you have DHCP installed on the server then remove it as ICS will take care of DHCP for you.

                        I don't think you should do that. The NIC connected to the modem should be set to get it's ip address from DHCP and it will get the actual ip address from the modem. The NIC connected to the switch will configure itself with an ip address of 192.168.0.1 and will configure itself as a DHCP server and give ip adresses to the clients and aslo will give them the default gateway and DNS server ip addresses.

                            ICS should be set up on the server only and not any clients. Because you are usimng a modem instead of DSL, Cable, etc. you may have to configure "dial on demand" on the server NIC that is connected to the modem. I've never used a modem with ICS (except with Windows 9 so I'm not sure exactly where to go but if you look at the properties of the ICS NIC you should find it.
