If you were to truely hide your IP address you wouldn't be able to surf the web! You send a request for a webpage, and the webpage has to be sent back to you. You won't get the webpage if your IP address is really hidden.
I'm sure what you're thinking about is some kind of proxy service. These can mask your IP address from the final destination website, but the proxy itself still has to know your IP address to deliver the webpage to you. Using a proxy service should be no different under Linux than under Windows. You don't modify anything at the OS level. You just subscribe (?) to the proxy service and point your web browser there instead of the real website you want to access.
Matir that was exactly whati was looking for!! And not to bad to get installed and working! Thankyou very much.
Just as a bit of a side line, before I posted my question on here I did look on google and kept getting information about Ip Masquerading but it all went a bit over my head, what is this and will it do the same thing?
Don't get me wrong I'm compleatly happy with the above solution, this is now just curiosity.
