Maybe your home DSL/cable connection really isn't the place for this
(or any) list. I suspect the terms of service say that it isn't.

There a number of places that offer UML or Xen based virtual servers
(root and all) for as low as $5 or $10 a month. Rimuhosting,
Redwoodvirtual, Linode, (three that I have used) and many many others
all have offers that might work. Especially for something as resource
unintensive as this.
