    Yes, if the machine meets the hardware requirements which you can Google - looks like it does though. I'd advise replacing that single HDD with a RAID though. If it's just for home use, installing Exchange on a DC isn't quite so 'troublesome' - if you can though I'd still suggest running AD on a separate box and keeping the Exchange machine as a member server.

    Just the Exchange licence, and the correct MX records configured for your Internet domain.

        And check with your ISP to make sure that they allow unsolicited incoming port 25 traffic. It's very common for residential class ISP's to block certain traffic that tends to be abused. You may have to either use some kind of a relay service or pay for a business class line.
