    Assuming asked for mailing / web hosting, you need to purchase a dedicated server (as you mentioned Linux based). You can consider dual Intel Xeon processor with raid and 1/ 2 TB disk space. RAM depends on working load, but 2/ 4 GB is somehow okay. It can be handled shared hosting load & install proper anti-virus. Keep in mind that an ISP establishment means, there are lots of services running such as a firewall / web / FTP / & so on. This is not enough, you have to do a good research before taking final decision. Also question about to fit all of these in your budget.

    There are a lot of good sites that can help with this. You may also need to provide info on what type of connection and bandwidth. Another factor is the up time, is this to be 24/7/365? Is this just for connection or are you looking to host data storage, be a mail server?
