Is it possible to make a pc work as a router/hub

My school is throwing out some old pc's that they dont need anymore and I decided to rescue one of them (with school's permission). What I need to know is, is it possible to set it up with 2 network cards and a usb modem so that it works as a hub/router for my other pc's? Is this difficult?

You can do it by hand using whatever distro. All the tols can be dowloaded. To give it a first spin to see what you will need if you build one yourself you could check out ClarkConnect. It's a fedora based router/firewall and does the job very well! the home edition is free of charge.
