If you're seeing the internet through an XP box using ICS, the internet can't see you. ICS isn't advanced enough to port forward port 80 to a certain machine. I recommend using a router (as low as $40) and either port-forwarding port 80 to the IP of the Apache box, or just setting that box outside the DMZ for however long you need it to be seen. I assume it's only on every now and then because laptops make for lousy servers. Heat problems arise rather quickly.

Good luck and have fun with it.
