For Samba, virtualization will be absolutely no bottleneck. It also
makes recovery much easier, should the server be unable to boot.
As far as "no domain," that's never a good idea. Even Microsoft
doesn't recommend such for Small-to-Medium Businesses (SMB,
and hasn't for a good decade). Running dnsmasq is cake, it just
reads the /etc/hosts file and shares it out as DNS. ;)
P.S. The server doesn't have issues with an USB drive attached?

They all have XP on their desks and a VPN for remote access. Backups
are a USB drive directly connected to the server. This is not running
