Home network planned hardware scenario:
ISP: ADSL
Router: linksys Wireless-N router [planned purchase]
VoIP phone service

I have never setup a VLAN at home.

Goal: separate VoIP, Internet downloads and home networking traffic from each other to minimize and target network traffic. I don't want VoIP traffic dropping packets because download traffic or other pc users at home are surfing internet or browsing each others pc's for files.

Computers should be on one VLAN; VoIP and Downloads [entertainment center] pc should each be on their own also.

I will have 4 pc's and one VoIP phone connected simultaneously. I have used Linksys routers for over 5 years, and am pretty familiar with configuration GUIs. The VLAN setup is the part I know nothing about.

How do I accomplish this from scratch?

Thanks.

I haven't seen any Linksys router which supports QoS based on VLANs. The only product that I am familiar which has some QoS features is RT042

http://www1.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=34&scid=29&prid=684

You will setup this product as a regular Linksys router and then you can define the minimum bandwidth for your VoIP device. This will ensure the VoIP device will have enough bandwidth to work with.

If you want VLANs, you may look at a Cicso router, probably something in 1800 series. Which will be overkill for a home setup and much more expensive as you can achieve the same with above product without setting up VLANs and controlling bandwidht based on IP Addresses.
