How can I set up a software/hardware RAID on a home network?

I'm interested in setting up a RAID 1 on a desktop computer (WinXP Home). I want to just attach it to a router and let it sit there for backups/storage. There are only 3 other computers in my home network. Should I use hardware or software raid? Should I use XP Pro or Windows 2000/2003 or just keep XP Home on it? I'm totally new to all this RAID stuff. Please help! Thanks!

Do you actually mean you want a 'dedicated' computer that you going to connect to your router to backups/storage for rest of your computer in the network?

This makes much more sense this this computer is already a backup computer and no need to backup a backup.

If that's the case, you can use low-cost, cheap computer with Linux (free) operation system to build such a Home Terabyte Backup System (using Linux)

If you actually want to build a RAID storage server, you can read these article that talk about that. One of them talk about build budget storage server with RAID-1
