Default To build a NAS or ...

Don't know if this is the best forum for this question, but I will put it out there and see if you guys can help me out on this:

My work wants me to set up a file server for thier 8 user XP p2p network.

I want to use my current home system to make the file server - but swap out the graphics and sound cards and put in a cheep graphics card cuz they will pay me for it and I can use the money to upgrade my home rig.

I GOOG file servers and came up with many kinds - using a windows os, NAS, linux etc.

What do you think will be the best one - easiest and cheepest?

Healing hands are good.

Linux for the OS unless you have to use Server 03 for some reason, That will help the cost.
