With just a bit of online searching, you should be able to find hundreds if not thousands of howto articles describing how to setup a Linux web server. Once you've found one you like and get started with it, post back with the details regarding any issues that you run into and someone should be able to help.
Note also that some Linux distributions have special server versions that may already be what you are looking for, or they won't require a lot of extra work and configuration to get them running the way you want.
Let us know how it goes.oz

Your wanting to build a LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack. These are the basic dependincies required by Wordpress. A LAMP stack is no to bad to setup and configure however I dont really recommend creating a LAMP stack and serving your friends live website from your house. Wordpress depending on the version has many vaunrabilities as well as the plugins or themes(Ex. timthumb). If you are using it as a test eviroment great, but if you are considering setting it up for a live website I suggest a datacenter or investing a great amount of time learning about mod security. Anyhow good luck on your adventure I have included some helpful links below.
