Hello Stefan,

WMS is not a focus for the OpenStreetMap project. But good work has been 
done with the following:
- Take an osm planet file
- import it into postGIS with osm2pgsql
- connect mapserver or geoserver to the postgis database containing the 
OSM data.

This is an excellent way to set up your own WMS server. You can search 
the forums on this topic or I can connect you to some users from the 
Dutch OSM group who have successfully done this.

Kind regards,

Milo van der Linden
