Connect the DSL modem to a switch or hub, and connect several machines to that, each configured statically to use the /29 subnet which your ISP is making available to you.

This is assuming your DSL modem deals with any PPPoE/PPPoA login stuff itself...if not, you might have to get a broadband router or config a FreeBSD box to do the PPPoE stuff and then route the subnet internally (perhaps using RFC-1918 addresses via natd & the redirect_address directive).
