Cons of Possible security issues when running a home web server on a home connection?

Provided that I have accesswant to free electricity andrun a home web server, but I'm concerned this could expose my connection is 1000/100Mhome network to security issues.

The server will run on a dedicated machine, what wouldwith nothing on it except the os + lamp stack.

The machine will be connected to a home modem, via ethernet, and the network will be the conssame of running my home webserver? Bonus questionother devices: would a 6-year old laptop be a good machine to start experiments with, console, smartphones etc.

I will run some websites in the server, and I'm concerned about how it's presence on the web could expose my IP address, and consequently put my privacy in danger.

What are are the security problems I could encounter exposing my home ip on the net? If my server is compromised, will my entire network be in danger?
