I've started playing around with it at home.
I installed the asterisk port on FreeBSD and downloaded the free
Counterpath X-Lite softphone for XP. Using a headset (Plantronics
USB), I've gotten as far as calling the asterisk demo on my server.
I got an account on FWD (Free World Dialup) for testing, and also
downloaded and registered with Skype.

As far as hardware, you might want to look at SNOM phones or Polycom
phones for SIP based IP phones, and Sipura as an ATA to use with
Here's an article on how one guy setup asterisk for use at home:
