It depends on what you want on your home server.
If you boot SMS you already have a server with ftp, samba,torrent station, webserver,print server, fax server (needs modem) ready, you only need to do a little tweaking on your needs.
If you have more that on pc and don't have an adsl router that handles the DHCP you can assign it on SMS through Webmin Interface.
If You want to act as a Server/Router you will have to create a simple firewall.
You can use Morizot's (EFG) Easy Firewall Generator here
I think I'll add this script to SMS because it's simple and easy to understand by everyone.
As I said before you can do everything, it depends on what you want for your home server.
What do you want to do?

Thanks gerasimos_h

What are some of the commands I could use? I'm new to this so I don't know what I'm doing but I want to learn. what I like to is setup an web site or a place for other to download files. I do have 2 computer, a router and fast internet.

Thanks Jack

If others are located on local network, and not on the internet, you can use SAMBA it's already setup and ready out of the box. You can manage it from webmin or swat or by opening '/etc/samba/smb.conf'

Code:
[global]
        log file = /var/log/samba.%m
        ldap ssl = No
        restrict anonymous = no
        domain master = no
        public = yes
        server string = SMS Samba Server
        max protocol = NT
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        acl compatibility = winnt
        server signing = Auto
        security = share
        preferred master = no
        max log size = 50

[Samba @ SMS]
path = /var/smb/samba/
read only = no

[FAXES]
path = /var/spool/hylafax/recvq/
read only = no

[TorrentFlux Downloads]
path = /var/smb/tflux_downloads/
read only = no


Changing Workgroup with yours, and changing readonly to yes if you don't want others to messing up your files.

For web server just upload your site in '/var/www/htdocs/' rename or remove my index.php before though.
If you want others to access your site via internet then you probably need to port forward port:80 from your aDSL router to the SMS IP machine.
I hope I did not confuse you.

The link it's actually in your server, http://yoursmsserver/efg/ or you can follow the link above http://easyfwgen.morizot.net/gen/ to generate your rc.firewall script.
