Steven:  Thanks for your patient explanation, it put me in the right ball game.  My ISP is
NEXX.COM (bronz level).  The DOS command 'ipcfg' doesn't seem to work and I can't find it
in lists of DOS commands.  --G

you are trying to set up.  If you want one that is on the Internet then you will
use the IP address assigned by your ISP.  Now with that said, you need to know
will your ISP allow you to have a server on the net.  Most Cable ISP's will NOT
allow server's to be run.  They block all port 80, 8080, 8088, etc.  
To find the IP address of your machine you can go to a DOS prompt, and type
ipcfg ( I believe is the correct one)  Then it will give you the IP address that
is on your machine. 
Yes, port 80 is available on all machine, unless you have the port blocked by
your Firewall, or an ISP is blocking it.  Who is your ISP??

 How do I find out for my machine?  Thanks for your help!  --G
