Firstly, you would need an connection with a fixed IP address or you would need to use the services of http://www.dyndns.org/ (there are others to choose from).

You'll probably find that you need a combination of Apache, PHP and MySQL together with something like phpBB.

You'll also need some way to ensure that your visitors can find you, and enough bandwidth to support people browsing the forum.
