It sounds like what you need to do is create your new IP Addresses on
a private (192.168.x.x) network, and then set your system to use NAT
to allow the traffic to pass. That way you don't have to depend on
other existing IP Addresses, and your machine can route the traffic
through using NAT. I know there is information at TLDP.org with
how-to's on setting up Masquerading (NAT) and PPP, but I don't recall
actual links right now.

Perhaps someone else will have better suggestions or links.
