I have my regulated DSL line from Qwest.  My ISP is Forethout.net, formerly 
Interlink.  They give me 2 IP address with no extra charge to my $20 a month
bill for the 256Kb up/down connection.  Each IP after those 2 were $5.
At least that's what I think they qouted me a while back.

As far as registering the IP addresses, I've never done that.  Right now the
domain names are the creative ones that Forthought assigned to them (
i148.denver.dsl.forethought.net is one).
