If you're looking for a quick answer to the home server question, maybe you could try XAMPP. This is a LAMP server install on Windows.

The advantage is that all management is in a Windows GUI and until you've tried a Linux server you won't appreciate how marvellous *that* is. You shouldn't really use it for production (though a lot of people do), but for a LANserver it's superb.

You can run flat sites, CMS sites, files or whatever off it.

Funnily enough I know where there's an excellent tutorial for Xampp to help smooth your way: just google 'xampp manual' and pick the #1 result

Also I've just remembered there's a good tute on this site by Robert Schifreen on installing Ubuntu server:
