He doesn't *need* anything else. NT will act as a router without any
additional software. I've been doing exactly this for a year and a half
with NT 3.51, a small subnet, a bunch of virtual servers, and a RAS dialup
(first POTS, then 2 channel VOD ISDN) connection.

How'd I get it to work? Dunno. What motivated me? My wife got tired of
racing me in the morning to the home office to read her email on *my*
system :) So I built her a subnet and we surf side by side. The family that
surfs together...
