Sharepoint 2010 Server 2008 r2 running IIS
Linux Centos web server

I have a question for a sharepoint expert out there. I want to know if its possible to do this and how.  I have a sharepoint site for users to work from locally and externally with department sites etc.. (www.sharepoint.com) everything is working great.  
I have a linux server hosting a different site which is only available locally (www.local.org) pretty much linking to local data and displaying in a web page with links etc.  I want to know if i can use www.sharepoint.com as an authenication method to log in first then be able to display all the contents within www.local.org on a sharepoint page for external users to be able to view and use? Hopefully I'm explaining that correct.

There is no authentication in Sharepoint. Sharepoint is integrated with AD and it is AD where you actual authentication happens. So, you need to look for Unix and AD integration here.

Yea your right it does go through AD.  
Let me try this again
I want to be able to log in to www.sharepoint.com with NTLM to authenticate which would gain me access to sharepoint and subsites.  Then from with in a sharepoint site page i want to be able to view all the content and navigate www.local.org but I want it to stay inside the sharepoint site instead of directing out of it.  I guess similar to a proxy site.  You stay within the site but are able to view other site content while remaining in the original location.  
I don't think i would need unix and ad integration for that since its viewable to everyone locally would I?

Nope it may not be possible to display the content in www.sharepoint.com from www.local.org . As sharepoint works on web part and doesnt have a webpart to display from other sites running in non windows.

Do you require authentication to login to local.org? If no, then you can create put an hyper link on the page. This can open on new browser.
If the authentication is required...try secure store service, which might help here to authenticate using sharepoint account

No authentication to log on to local.org.  It can open even though it would be outside the local DNS in a browser using a hyper link that's put into sharepoint?

What's anyone's thoughts on this http://www.sharepointjohn.com/aspnet-proxy-page-cross-domain-requests-from-ajax-and-javascript/ does it work anyone tried it?

Or what about trying to create a virtual directory location tied to the "local site" then point it under the sharepoint site in IIS manager? Would it then work externally using sharepoint as the first layer connector pretty much
