Cool Cabel modem and switch problem

I have a Comcast cable modem and I wanted to share 2 Gateway E-4200 computers(WIN 98). I set up a Netgear Fast Switch(5 ports)(FS105) and connected the modem to port 1 and the 2 Gateways to ports 2 and 3. The first Gateway connected quickly, but I cannot connect the second Gateway. Any advice? Many thanks!

No router, no shared connection. Not with just a switch anyway. The modem can assign only one IP-- whoever gets it first gets it.

Many thanks! I thought I needed the router but wasn't too sure.
