Broadband

I have two PCs which I want to enable to receive Broadband independently of
each other without a Radio.

I have had different suggestions, which for one reason or another are
unsuitable. e.g. lack of Ethernet ports, so a router system is out.

Now I had the following suggestion:-

"If you are running Windows 98SE, Windows 2000 or XP, install a network card
in the machine with the broadband modem, enable Internet Connection Sharing
(ICS) for the broadband modem, install a network card in the computers you
want to share with and lastly set each computer to obtain its IP
configuration via dynamic allocation (DHCP)."

Will someone who has better knowledge of these matters than I advise me
whether this suggestion will give me the results I want as above. My OS is
Win.XPPro (SP2).
Thank you.
