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.

I'd say that it depends heavily on your Internet service provider. It can cost extra, or it can be available only with access packages that are more than you need for more money than you pay now. Maybe switching ISP can give you better prices for globally visible IP address - that should be asked on local (geographically) forums.
But on the other hand, think what do you need that for. If you just need to be able to download some 100KB files from your computer while being somewhere else, maybe using IPv6 tunnel broker (http://go6.net , for example) and SixXS gateway (look at sixxs.org, or pay attention to differences between http://go6.net.ipv4.sixxs.org and http://go6.net) is enough. If you need just SSH to your home machine from some other machine that is under your partial control, IPv6 can also can be a solution.
For redhat. As you list in your profile as your distro.
I usually ask linuxquestions only after I search for days or hours (sometimes weeks or months) before asking.
But when I typed in (on www.yahoo.com) redhat network configuration, the first link contains what you need.
But here it is:
To use the Network Administration Tool, you must be running the X Window System and have root privileges. To start the application, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System Settings => Network, or type the command redhat-config-network at a shell prompt (for example, in an XTerm or a GNOME terminal).
