    your modem needs to be connected to some sort of router, either a purchased one or a computer setup as one(this is what connection sharing under xp does), then the router can be plugged into the switch and all other pc's can hang of the switch

    You'll need the modem to connect directly to a PC or router/gateway to share the connection. The PC with two network cards and a sharing program or just a router/gateway (which incorperates a switch). Windows from 98SE onwards comes with a sharing program. ;)
    Here are some diagrams.

    That's the router I got for my home network. Basically plug your modem in one side, computers in the other. IT connects to the net, and all the computers then go through that for access. Very handy.
