    Check out Apache.

    It comes with most Linux distributions and is quite popular.

    Another thing you might want to look into is if your ISP will let you host a HTTP server. Many ISPs block inbound connections on ports 20/21, 25, and 80 (FTP, SMTP, and HTTP).

    When I ran a home HTTP server, I had more trouble with port forwarding than I did actually setting up Apache. I suggest reading through the documentation on Apache's site. It's very good.
