OK  Could you specify the port?  Just tell Apache to listen on another port.
Then, specify the port to your website (ex.  www.yourdomain.com:8080).  I
wouldn't know how to handle this automatically unless you did the router
suggestion.  I have a linksys routher that does that sort of thing.  It
works great.  But, I understand that putting it on your box would be too
late in the process.  It would have to go on the entry point to your
network.  And, your admins have already indicated their position on that
idea.
