    What do you mean "mask" an ip?

    Use a proxy server when browsing the web?

    you can't masquerade your own ip with the computer you are using. another computer can masquerade your ip though. but i think you should look into getting your linux box behind a nat (network address translation) firewall if you want the ip to be masqueraded. and gives lots of info on networking and firewalls.
