Windows 7: W7 Pro 64 & W Home Server 2010

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and Windows Home Server 2010
W7 Pro 64 & W Home Server 2010

I am running Windows 7 Pro 64 on all of my client systems. I am about to setup a Windows Home Server 2010 system and am getting very mixed information on the best way to setup my drives in a fault tolerent configuratioin. I was planning to use the RAID 5 controller built into my ASUS mother board with 4 x 1TB WD drives in the array. I am going to install the OS on a 500GB drive outside of the array. My understanding was that this was very fault tolerent as when any drive failed, all I had to do was install a new drive and the system would rebuild it with the parity info on the overhead space on the array.
I would very much appreciate either some straight talk on RAID 5 or another suggestion entirely. I just lost some personal data I had stored on an older server with multple drives but no fault tolerence. I don't want that to happen again.
