Running PHP/Apache on a user mode linux machine, where to stick mysql?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I hope no one minds me running this past them.

I'm running a linux machine with with apache, php and mysql.  This is not
accessable from the internet.  I want a server that is visable to the
internet. For that purpose I am running a user mode linux machine and using
apache on that as the external looking web server.  This means that stuff I
want to see on the outside is on a copy of apache that is doing little and
does not get messed around with as much as my main copy of apache.

I am not using mysql with it at the moment. If I do am I better running
mysql on the user mode machine or running a second copy of mysql on a
different port on the 'main' machine.  I'm beginning to think the latter
has advantages.
