Hi, I have never used a PIX before and now i have inherited one on a hosted website.  I added an external IP to the website and i need to have the PIX direct that external ip address to the internal ip address of the web server.  I have no idea where to start. I am using PIX Device manager 3.0

any help would be great

To get this done you basically need to:
   1 - Create a Static Mapping from an external IP to the internal IP or forward a single port from the outside to an single port to the inside
   2 - Create/Edit the ACL controlling access on the inbound traffic to allow ports 80/443 in to the external IP that you chose.  

Here is a sample showing how to forward a port:

This sample shows how to create a 1 to 1 static for a mail server, its the same thing only use port 80 and 443 instead.

This cisco link has a similiar example with screenshots from the GUI ASDM.  Should be enough to follow.     Hope that helps.
