Create a network of three computers running a Windows2000 server.

Can you help me create a network of three computers running a Windows2000 server? One of the computer has two network cards. Could you also tell me how to configure the IP addresses?
Here is the procedure to connect PCs in this way:

Connect the PC with two network cards to the other two PCs. Assign following IP Addresses to PCs:

[PC C] – Card 1 – Card 1 – [PC A] – Card 2 – Card 1 – [PC B]

PC C Card 1 – 192.168.1.2 Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway – 192.168.1.1
PC A Card 1 – 192.168.1.1 Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway – 192.168.1.1
PC A Card 2 – 192.168.2.1 Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway – 192.168.2.1
PC B Card 1 – 192.168.2.2 Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway – 192.168.2.1

Once this configuration is done, you will need to enable IP forwarding on PC A. After doing this, PC B and PC C will be able to talk to each other, as well as to PC A
