Don't spend a whole day configuring your PC to be a server if you are not serving a web site off it. And especially if you're paying your ISP for that service!
His isp's webspace is not configurable (as in mime types)
His isp's webspace could be running who knows what for server software (linux, windows, etc)

Is the address you are typing on the pc's and blackberry http;//192.168.0.x where x is any number, by chance? If so, that is your computers Private
ip address assigned by the router.
You are 2 steps away.
1) in your router, look for port forwarding or filtering. you want it so anything on port 80 of the public ip that hits the router, gets directed at your computer. Ex: WAN IP in router 67,113.115.03 >forwards to> the pc on the network running the server 192,168.0.101
2) if this is windows xp, make sure an exception in the firewall allows port 80. If using another firewall instead, make sure it's port 80 is opened.
Then you type in http;//your.public.ip.here
that will get you to the index page you made and have in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\
Remember if you put in xxx.adp to directly download on the blackberry, without a page and link, would be http;//your.public.ip.here/xxx.adp
