I am a newbie here, but here are some good sites I have found.

Most of these deal with Asterisk@Home installs.

Here is the Asterisk@Home Handbook.
http://asteriskathome.sourceforge.net/handbook/index.html

Hardware requirements are listed in most as a P3 450MHz+ 256MB 20Gig HD.
Voip provider is up to you. It depends on who, where, and how long. Most of these sites recommend Broadvoice.

I almost forgot a couple other good info sites:

Good Luck.
