server deployment issues

Help!

I am working on a project where the client, who has a
Windows 2000 server outside the network running IIS for
public access to their web site. they want to promote the
server to an active directory enabled domain controller
and bring the server inside the network yet still allow
their external clients access to the web site. is this
possible, and how would I accomplish it with minimal
headache? the server is currently outside the firewall
with a public address, but bringing it inside the LAN it
will need a different address altogether. How do I make
this happen? thanks for anyone's help!

Yes it could be done, but I really don't think this is a good idea. You
should use two servers. If it's a "joke" website, you could just config
an old desktop PC to run IIS, and use the big server for the AD.
