Ah ha! This is the type of article that I've been looking for.
A Server of Your Own
sniff sniff.... I'd love to have a server of my own...
NOTE: seems to only work with static IP's hmmmm still working on how to fix the dynamic IP problem. Still a good article though.
NOTE: This article is for linux but linux is cool and you should use it, anyway the article is a little dated too, but still useful
