Hosting a web site on a home Linux box

I am thinking of looking to find a DSL provider in my area -- outside Charlotte, NC -- that will allow me to host a family web site on a small Linux box. It's really so I can teach myself a lot about website admin. But I have read that some ISPs block certain ports on residential accounts. Does anyone know the policies of such providers as AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth? Does anyone have a DSL provider they'd recommend me?

Wish I could. Checked and they don't cover my area. Any other recommendations?
