The web site will need a reserved IP address first.

Otherwise, I am not entirely sure I understand the question. Are you trying to have your internal Linux server exposed to external traffic?

If so, you need to be aware that this is a huge exposure of your internal network to every hacker in the world....

step 1) make the linux server part of the dmz
step 2) virtual host the internal network site, and set it to only accept connections from the internal network
step 3) make the main webserver config be for the external website..

you do need to have a static ip on the dmz box.
this will givew you some protection from external access to the internal site.
