No. That IP address is used at the TCP/IP layer. Outgoing requests pick
it up and it is then used by the server at your ISP to route replies
back to your modem.

All you have to do is:

- have mod_proxy (do ./httpd -l to check).
- ProxyRequests On
- set up IE in the windows clients to use the proxy (Tools -> Internet
Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings -> Use a Proxy Server, Address =
linux box, Port = linux apache port (usually 80).
