You should be able to assign the Linux server a static IP address in your local network (e.g. usually works well). Just configure the Linux box with that static IP and see if it works. Then you can configure the router to forward ports like 80 (HTTP) and 25 (SMTP) to that IP address. On my Linksys router this is under "Applications and Gaming" -> "Port Range Forward". That should be all you need to do to be able to get to your Linux Apache server from "the outside".
