Multiple ip addresses on my router

I have a Netgear Prosafe router. I have 2 public ip addresses. What I want to do is forward one ip address to one computer and the other to another. But I can't seem to figure out how to do this. Any ideas?

Specifically what model of router do you have?  Most all routers cannot do this, I had this problem a while back and to fix it I put 4 network cards in an old system and used the computer as a router.  I forget the name of the program I used, but it was UNIX based.  If you are interested, I can probably find the name.  The easier fix probably would be to get two routers.  
You could get a standard switch or hub, plug your router's internet port along with the one computer you want to take the IP into the switch, then connect your modem to the uplink port on the hub/switch, or to a standard port with a crossover cable.

Just make sure you enable a firewall on the computer you put outside.
