home network/site

Have set up home network, linux machine with ppp connection, windoze and
FreeBSD running on other machines.  Have been looking into cable or dsl.

My expectations where that I could have setup done on windoze machine and then
swap out for Linux or FreeBSD to hang the network on.  Also expected that I
could register a domain name and run a server.

Both cable and dsl seem to use this precludes a registered domain

For seamless switch from windoze ISP setup to network looks like I should set
up a duel boot machine (I assume the MAC address stays the same...card
specific not OS specific?).

How does one come up with a service that will provide a fixed IP address and
name servers (this is what I an looking for...right?).  I am in North Andover,
I thank any and all for pointing in the right direction.  THANKS
