[jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - the right choice ?

this is a very general question, regarding a lot of JBoss products.
we want to set up a server for development purposes, we are very new to this whole server business.
this so called "server" is a regular pc running a windows xp os, connected to a 5MB adsl connection with a fixed ip address.

after a lot of searching and reading we found that the JBoss products are right for us since we want the server to run mainly on java.
we installed the JBoss AS 4.2.2 and we're having a lot of hard time configuring it to work the way we want (you can search for my username and see a lot of posts all over the jboss forums).
since we probably made a lot of false configuring we think that it might be smart to start over now that we know a bit more (though not enough).

the problem is that there's a new jboss AS now and so our question is this:
should we go with the JBoss AS 5 or the 4.2.x ?
the 4.2.x have more documentation and more examples so it will probably be easier to configure BUT we saw that the 5.x has major differences and so it might be foolish to start with something that will be deprecated soon.

our goal is a server that will have the following features:
 - J2EE support (including EJBs)
 - MySql database as the jboss datasource
 - hibernate
 - php for the "view" part of our application
 - a version control software (like subversion)
 - ftp access (does this have anything to do with the jboss at all?)

in addition we might want to use JBoss Cache, Mobicents and probably a few more JBoss products (including the JBoss Tools).

how should we go about this?
thanks, nitzan.
