I am so lost

i am currently being hosted by my ISP. i am setting up a web server and need assistance in figuring out what i should do. i am running windows XP home and WIn Me, i also have Red Hat linux on a test bed. i am hoping to use a free dns link to my ip. my problem is at the very begining. from what i have been reading it seems as though XP home does not work for a web server and that i must use Win ME or NT or XP Pro. i hope to set this up as soon as possible but there is no rush.

please resopond Either on this Fourm or Via E-mail.

oh and is this the Right forum to be posting this kind of request?

    So you try to make a webserver running on your home PC, right?
    then you need WAMPP (this is a bundle of that software you need) from
    http://www.apachefriends.org/
    or if you use RedHat you can install everykind of software you need for a webserver from the installtion CDs...
