Help me, Captain Intarweb!

Okay! I need geek help!

I want to host some web stuff. Nothing fancy, just boring old html pages. (And maybe some pictures for my blog.) I know that I could pay someone a very minimal amount of money to do it, but I really feel like I ought to be able to do it myself for free, because:

I have a lovely linux box sitting in the other room. It has a static IP address and everything. It's running Fedora core (1 or 2) and I'm all but certain it's got apache installed. So how do I make it spew webpages onto the Intarweb? Is it actually as easy as it seems like it ought to be?

I probably also need to get a domain and make my computer respond to web.something.something instead of number.number.number.number the way it does right now. What's the best way to do that, given that I am both stingy and lazy?

There used to be lots of DIY pages, but that was back in the simple days. I no longer even know where to find the relevant info. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
