Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Is it possible to get those IPs from DHCP? (so MOON eth0 sends request to EUROPE which would forward it to ADSL-modem which request address. Addresses are assigned by MAC-address (so IP is almost always same)) So I want 3 public IPs (which should be possible, becose I can get top 5 from my ISP)
Address request: MOON -> EUROPE -> Modem
Packets: Modem -> EUROPE (checks destination and is there something why it should be dropped. If there is, then it will drop it) -> DEST
Is it possible by just using dhclient eth0 and adding few IPtables rules to router (check example bellow)? Or do I need some special configuration?
iptables -A INPUT -d 188.8.131.52 -j DROP
iptables -A POSTROUTUING -p tcp --dport 80 --dst 184.108.40.206 -j SNAT --to-source 220.127.116.11
(yeah. I'm not very famiar with iptables yet, but point on that rule should be clear. It should block all incoming connections MOON expect connections to port 80, so it can run webserver).
Reason why I want many public is IPs is that HADES is my little brother computer. I want that he should be able to use same things (so he could example use IRC on servers which allows only one connection/IP. I don't thnk NAT will work on that).
yea u can use DHCP. in the dhcpcd.conf file, you specify the ip's that your server gives out. also, if you are using real ips, you dont have to MASQUERADE or SNAT unless you just want to make it look like all your packets are comming from 1 machine.
