Asterisk will install just fine on a desktop version. if you want to just use that computer as an asterisk server however i do suggest Ubuntu server to run it on since its a little bit more efficiënt.

As to how to install it, you can either google for a nice how-to or look at asterisk own stuff. is a nice site with lots of info about it ^^
