Is starting web hosting feasable in my situation?
Is it possible to start out of my home? I have a 2MB cable connection, and share it with my family. I have been thinking about building a linux web server, and starting hosting. But I have a billion questions.. First off, is it possible to start out of the house? Two, do I need to ask my ISP for some additional service? And about how much more monthly is that? Can somebody please point me in the correct direction?

Runing from home is fine if you dont mind leaving the server on 24 7, but sooner or later youll round of of bandiwth allowcated for that month by ur ISP. i know some ISP's are stricked about this, so my advice is to colocate the server if ur thinking about making one with a datacentre.
or if your just starting out and want some background info of how a server operates i recomend a reseller account with reliable support and uptime, none of the $5 doller rubbish :P

The first thing you need to check is, Does your ISP allow your connection to be a server, some dont allow it. Ifn the answer to this is no, then you have 2 choices, use another ISP or go colocated and rent a server.
Also, dont try to host too many sites on your line, it could get very slow.
