Setup / Access Cox and Internet

I'm trying to setup a VPN host at my home.  The host is on Windows XP Home Edition.  Cox is the ISP and I have a Linksys wireless router.  I want to be able to access this computer via the internet on my wireless laptop loaded with Vista.

I have the XP box setup to accept Incoming connections.  Not sure if I should keep the DHCP option or setup a static IP.  If the latter, does it matter what I enter?  Do I need to make any changes to my wireless router to permit access?  How to I access this from the outside.  The IP of the XP box is usually something like which is just internal I believe.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
