Install ICS (internet connection sharing) on the PC that has the USB modem connected. Use Windows Help to explain how to do this.
This will allow your local network to talk to the USB modem and thius share it;s internet connection.
Be wary of firewall configs, especially if you have one on the Main internetted PC. ZoneAlarm Free will not work with ICS, and other firewalls may need to be configured to allow access between the internet (USB modem) and your local network.
