As my cable provider is going to set up the out speed to 256kb (768kb down)I'm going to set up my own server. The problem is that I dont know exactly what I need to do that.
Here is a list of stuff that I'm planning to get:

- Athlon 1,4 prosessor
- 512Mb DDR memory
- IBM Deskstar 40GB IDE 7200RPM
- 10/100 ethernet card
- Hub of some kind
++
Is this overkill?

I'm planning to install Unix, mySQL and PHP.
Is it a good choice to get Unix? I dont have any experience with it!!
Do I need anything more (like admin panels)?

Also I'm planning to use no-ip.com to do the dynamic IP stuff!!
