Any suggestion on how and where to setup the file share, TFS and the QA server?

Windows 2008 Server R2 Enterprise allows for up to four virtual installs.

Virtual use is great for all business sizes since the technology allows you to run multiple servers on one physical server saving money on hardware.

Install Hyper-V and Create your lab environment with the Server 2008 installations.
If you will expand in the future,and buy VMWARE machine,you can migrate to Vmware easily.
