I suppose we better document the non-straightforward stuff first.
Adding NAT and filter rules definitely doesn't count for

If you got it working with a Linksys, then I don't see why you should
have any problems doing the same with m0n0wall.

Access the webGUI, click Firewall -> NAT, click the plus button to add
a new rule, enter 80 in all of the three port number fields (or just
choose HTTP from the menu), enter 192.168.1.90 as the "NAT IP", check
the "Auto-add a firewall rule..." checkbox, click Save, repeat these
steps with 100 for the port number, click Apply changes, and arrange
for a visit at your hairdresser's to get your hair fixed. :) It doesn't
get more simple than that! Just remember that you cannot access your
web server with its public IP address from LAN - the reasons for that
have been discussed about a dozen times before on this list.
