I have a windows Pro 2000 as my server and 3 workstations, the server has two NIC installed on it, I would like to ask if what's the major security benefit of using 2 NIC and using as a gateway and proxy server to the workstations?

Several, actually - you can lock down that PC, or even re-install and use it as a firewall. And if you were to use it as a proxy, you could filter everything that went to the other workstations.
