Home Lab VoIP on the CHEAP...?

Hi Guys,

I'm new to VoIP and want to integrate a bit of VoIP into my home lab so I can start to learn about it. I haven't got much more money to spend on my lab so I was hoping I would at least be able to get some sort of VoIP services going, even if just on the LAN initially (I don't have an FXO interface as yet, and I wouldn't know which one to buy anyway...).

Here's what I have at the moment:

CCM5.1 running as a VMWare virtual instance

3550-48 (PoE)
Linksys WRT54GL (DDWRT)
Linksys WAP54G

I dont even have an IPPhone atm, but was hoping to initially use a free (trial) softphone such as IP Blue VTG, i thought it would be cool to get it working on the softphone first, then invest in a handset of two.

Anyway, I hope you guys can help with a few pointers in the right direction, or point out anything obvious you see missing in my hardware list, thanks a lot people!
