Having gone through reading lots of documentation, I was going to deploy share point at my company but have lots of different information. Some suggest virtualization of the wfe while others say get a SAN, yet others actually suggest a single server installation.

I likely only have about a dozen users to support  and perhaps 24 max.

This would be a "green field" environment where nothing exists at present except an AD environment and file server

Any thoughts are appreciated if you've actually done this

Well before I can answer your question a few for you.

What is your budget?
Can you buy new hardware?
If no new hardware what are the specs on existing HW?
How much data do you estimate you will have?
Do you need high available i.e. load balancing or SQL mirroring?
Will this content be available internally as well as externally?

I think that should be a good start.

With the information you provided i would suggest a 2 server configuration. This will consist of 1 db server and 1 server runnin the sp app and web front end.

As far as storage you can use either local to the server or luns off a san. This will depend on budget which you choose but either case you should use raid 10 for wherever the db/ logsare stored.

We are currently runnin a 5 server sp farm that handles hundreds of concurrent users. Our environment is 2 db servers clustered, 1 sp app server, an internal web server and a public facing web server.

With two servers properly configured you should be pretty well to go
