Yep, you can just...

This worked for me. I have a complicated setup with a desktop mac that has a static IP. It provides a dynamic IP for an airport basestation, which provides dynamic IPs for two wireless iBooks. I wanted to be able to print to a USB printer connected to the desktop machine.

I duplicated my built-in Ethernet entry in Sys Prefs -> Networking, gave the duplicated item (Built In LAN) a static IP in the same subnet as the ones provided by the Airport base station, and set the order of the network ports so that the static, outside-world IP was first, and then the internal subnet IP. Worked like a charm!
