How do you access Internet? Probably through ADSL router, I assume.
Then go to (router's IP no.) then go to menu similar to
advanced - virtual server etc and then just forward the port no to
internal address. for this to work NAT must be configured on the
router. Interestingly you can forward another port (say smtp) to
other PC running sendmail / qmail. You can have as many port
forwarded as required.

Off course you can use iptables. ie. configure Linux as  NAT gateway
& then forward port 80 (or other) to internal host.
Try using firestarter a GUI based utility to do this.

Bye Rahul.
