Linux as stable infrastructure server - DNS/Fileserver


I'm considering setting up Linux as a infrastructure server on my home LAN. For the last 5 years I've been running Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 (I've gotten a valid license for this by my employeer). But after getting virus infections a numerouse times the last year I'm considering setting up a Linux box for fileserver, DNS, FTP etc.
But, how easy is it to configure a raid? I'm going to use Debian, Ubuntu LTS, or Centos. As far as I have experiences, a raid setup is not easy to do during the initial setup (or I haven't been able to do this).
Can anyone please point me in direction of some usefull resources on the web?

On linux, Logical Volume Manager ,or LVM, is the most common tool. If you google for lvm and raid you will get several very good articles on how to create a software raid array.

The idea is exactly the same as Windows. You configure it at installation time. I found it quite easy to do.
