You can start with Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Small Office Home Office (SOHO) Edition which supports up to 50 clients.

As answer 1 suggested, Microsoft Small Business Server is one answer. There is Linux and Apache servers[Apache boasts about a 34% to 40% of all web servers out there. You can order trial ware software for Microsoft products such as Windows 2000 Advanced server, Windows 2003 Server.I personally would wait as Windows 2003 Serverlaunch is just a week or so away. Windows 2003 Server is the same SRP as Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2003 Server has a low cost web server version at $395.00 to compete with Apache.

IThe Small Business Server is a complete network solution out of the box which includes Exchange 2000, ISA server and SQL Server [10GB limit on SQL storage] Handles up to 50 computer connection [SBS is based on # of computer connections for CALs and not users]. At $990 from Atomic Park software, it's a decent purchase for a small business. Gives all the capabilities of a medium to large business and leaves room to grow.

for a 4-5 workstation i won't even waste money on getting a server. just network all the computer share peripepherals and have one workstation that for file sharing. backup this one station and you should be good to go.

for ms office stuff visit www.software602.com they have a free software that will open up ms office excel, ms word, and powerpoint.

for your website do it on redhat linux OS cost less than 50.00 and it comes with webserver, ftp etc etc.

Hope this helps
