Pretty Easy one(I THINK)????

Ok, I setup a network, got 3 boxes, 2 Linux 1 win98.. Now I set it up so that 1 dials into the internet, and the other 2 can get on the internet through the server. Now here's the question... I have a static ip for the server, now how do I make it so that I can go to the other box's via the web, I mean I can type linuxbox1.whatever.com but I also want to be able to type in linuxbox2.linuxbox1.whatever.com??? So that when I type that in it goes to my server and my server directs it to the linux2 box??? IS IT POSSIBLE??????? More points available if this is NOT an easy question....

What you need is a proxy sevice on linuxbox1. Look for ProxyPass/ProxyPassReverse on Apache (http://www.apache.org). It will give you the possibility to address linuxbox2 as for instance http://linuxbox1.whatever.com/linuxbox2/
linuxbox1 will then forward the request on your lan to linuxbox2 and return the reply to the user.

No, it is only possible if you have an IP range. If you only have one (global) IP, then only one computer can be visible to the outside world, regardless of their symbolic representation.

use your static IP on a Linux box and use IP masquerading so that you can use the other computer by just using a fake ip.
eg.
linux real-ip
other two computers 192.168.0.* fake ips
gateway the one with the static ip
dns use your ISPs dns servers
MORE: read the information about IP masquerading
