raid 0 will not offer any protection so go with raid 1

depends fully on whether you want capacity or redundancy.  RAID 0 is "faster" but has no redundancy and you probably won't see any difference over the LAN.  RAID 1 offers redundancy, but cuts your capacity in half.  

Also, RAID isn't supposed to be a backup solution, you still need to backup important files.

Should I use the 1996GB left over or leave some space if I use 0?

There is no reason for the 20GB for misc. storage.  It just means that the person that wrote that guide wanted about 20GB of non-mirrored (unimportant?  temporary?) disk space.  I'd make the whole thing RAID.

Thanks for the quick response, I was eager to get this going with my WD TV Live.
