If anyone's looking to get started, I'd suggest http://www.tunnelbroker.net/.
They'll route you a block over a tunnel. Very easy to get started. The
alternative is a 6to4 tunnel which gives you an IPv6 block based on your
IPv4 address.

If you have a Linux box as the gateway you should run radvd to send out the
router advertisements to the machines behind it.
