It sounds, as you are a "newbe". Setting up a linuxbox is one thing,
getting it in the internet is another.
Better way is to look for a provider (maybe free, or free & php)
to put the pages there. That´s cheaper then having the linuxbox be connected
to the internet via a phone-line. (mh.. what about an IP ?)
If you want to do PHP, set up a linux server as described in the link (see 
th other reply)
test your stuff "locally" and when you´re ready put them on the provider´s 
You´ll save a lot of money and time.
look in the archive for "free php spaces".
