Is it possible to do this? not dedicated or such just,... for fun for say 12 people. I have a ADSL connection and a normal 100mbit card.(networkcard)

What exactly are you trying to do? By "Cross Cable" do you mean a Cross-over cable? If you want to have two computers on a LAN sharing an internet connection with a crossover cable, one of the PCs would need two NIC cards. Then the PC directly connected to the internet would probably have to host the server.

And an ADSL connect might not have the bandwith to host 12 ppl.
