You need to set up a network, preferably wired, since (I assume) this is your first attempt to set up a network. I assume wireless will be a leap to far yet...
Enclosed is a simple diagram, it is not THE WAY to do it, it is ONE of the many ways to do this...
You need RJ45 cable and connectors...and...the computers need to be able to remote boot, that is a case for the network adaptors...
The cables are standard several need to wire them...
Basically, a switch is the center piece, all PC's have one wire going from the network adapter to that switch...from that switch, you have an other cable to the modem that leads to the internet...
You will have to set up some form of user space on the main computer (that needs to run 24/7)...
It's not hard, it takes several holes in the wall to let the cables through. That (for me) is the hardest part, but, I hate drilling holes
