Creating a Wireless Flat

Hi,
I am a student and wireless newbie but have been put in charge of providing broadband for 3 students. I am in a flat with no telephone line - 3 students in three rooms with three Windows based machines.

- a Dell Dimension 8400 running XP with Ethernet Cable Access.
- a Windows XP based laptop with an Intel ProWireless 2200 802.11b/g Mini PCI Wireless LAN Card
- a laptop with Windows 98 with just a USB 1.0.

I am getting NTL Cable broadband with a cable modem. The question is: Do i get the modem directly to my room and PC and let the two others connect from their rooms? Ot in case I have ro leave the flat, is it better to install it in the hallway?

What hardware do I need. I know my friend with the USB only will require a USB Wireless Connector but is the only thing I need a Wireless Cable Router?

Any hardware hints on getting/ sending NTL broadband to 3 computers would be very helpful!!

Any help
Thanks
Michael
