Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1

I have an Apple G4 Cube with OSX 10.3 on it.

I want to be able to host a website off of it that I can use for data that me and my friends can access, so I don't need a DNS domain name or any of that stuff.

I am currently behind DSL modem/router with no firewall except on the mac. I have several other things and another router pluged in to the router ports. I have two computers on the second router including the mac.

I followed the instructions above (press the web sharing button), and I can access my site internaly but not externaly.

How can I access them externaly? (like at someone else's house?)

      Thanks in advance.
