What are key elements for a file/email/printer server??

I have been asked to implement a file/email/print/internet sharing server.  I know for the most part what I need to do but would like help or suggestions.

-Router & Software

-Tower or Rack Server preferably with Raid Array 5
-Raid Controller
-Tape Back Up & Software
-Internet service (yet to be detarmined)
-Power Surge Protection
-Operating system (Windows 2k, 2003 or XP Pro)with enough client licenses
