Hmm ....

Your remark about runing apache makes me think you
are looking for your "external" internet ip address.

In that case there are also "loads of ways"

Here's one:
fire up your web browser and point it to

i'm currently DHCP right now.. i just need to play around apache to make sure it works w/ mysql(which i've yet to build and i wish firebird was more popular) server... once i'm comfortable about the security/performance.. then i have to install something like cpanel but not cpanel(a cheaper solution i hope- dreamhost perhaps?) to do some linux hosting... so i can just add accounts/domains in a few clicks and my customer gets an account immediately to play with... hope this journey will be a painless one...

Could always go to your modem's cfg page....motorola cable modems have will show your ip as well.
Of course going to your router's page will show it too.
