You can use ipmasqadm portfw to forward all connections from your static
mail address to your local mail server.
Regarding allowing access to your mail sever you will need to check the
MX record for your domain to verify if all mail goes to your isp
regardless. In my case it doesn't so I have to allow connections from
any ip to my mail server. Thus settting up the mail server with regard
to relaying and anti spam is very important.
Regarding dos partitions file permissions are a bit tricky under linux.
I would suggest that you convert them to ext2 if they are going to be on
the samba server.
Linux should have no problem with 15 gb disk as long as the boot sector
is before cylinder 1024.
