Network's file server

What would be better for a file server on a small(5 computer) network, and Intel based or amd based? If amd, does 64 bit really matter? Opteron anyone? How much does a processor really come into play if I have Raid and 10krpm drives? I've discovered I know nothing about servers, so anything you can offer would be great. Oh and I'm not too far against using Linux based servers, as long as it wont cry about being on the same network as 4 Win boxes.

Oh and do file servers need over a gig of memory? Or is this mostly for gaming servers?
