Seeing webserver from internal network


Hi, I recently configured a webserver on my home network which can only be seen from people outside of my network (WAN) for some. Now my webserver is also doing NAT routing to two different internal subnets which is working fine. All computers can connect to the Internet.

Is it possible for the internal compters to be able to access the Webserver?
The only way I have been able to test the server is by using dial-up(since it is only a completely different network), but i prefer using my existing internal network setup/DSL connection to test my Webserver. Is that possible?

My current set up:

Webserver has 3 NICs:
1 ->Website
2->subnet1
3->subnet2


DSL--->Webserver--->subnet1--->XXXX
Webserver--->subnet2--->router--->XXXX



x=computer

I am using SuSE 9.0 with Apache.

Probably the simple way would be to assign a static address to the server and point internal systems at it. i.e. give it an address of 192.168.0.1 and then use http://192.168.0.1 in the address bar of a browser or if it is translating the address the http://system_name (i.e if the name is my.server.org http://my.server.org).
