    Dell, you did not say what OS are you going to install on your server. Is it 2003, or will it be 2008? And it's not quite clear what are you trying to do... What's VirtualPC doing here ?!?
    There are a lot of sources here on Petri.co.il that describe how to install Active Directory on a server (i.e., for 2003). Not to talk about the whole Web... A simple search will give you anything you want. There's no need for a thread dedicated to this...
    I am not certain I understand what you want to do, but given the fact you have 4 XP and 1 Vista Ultimate workstation, there should be no problem creating a domain and adding those to it. Just be sure the XP is Professional ! XP Home cannot be part of a domain (but you know that, I'm sure).
    What will the server do, beside being a DC? Will it be a DHCP/File Server/Print Server/IIS? I am not sure 2x30GB disks will be enough... Are they going to be mirrored? And what's 30GB anyway? Are they IDE?

        Indeed. But SCSI disks are 36GB, not 30 ... So, where's the mistake?

          Google suggests that 30GB SCSI disks exist.

            Mind posting the link? I am always eager to learn things I didn't know...
