Our computer club is getting ready to install a wireless network setup in
the building we use. Range to furtherst point probably less than 100 ft.
Maybe 5 or 6 computers using the network for classes etc. etc. etc.

What is the best / fastest / latest / most robust (?) protocol?

Well, you have a few choices. 802.11G uses 2.4ghz spectrum and has
speeds up to 54mbs.
This is a good choice if there are not alot of 2.4ghz interference or
other networks in the area.

802.11a uses the 5ghz band and is less crowded and a bit less
susceptible to interference
due to phones, microwaves, baby monitors and the like. It is also
54mbs. All devices
must be 802.11a capable.

Pre-802.11n technolgy by Belkin is rumored to be very good and has
speeds up to 108mbs.
Although all devices must be Belkin pre-n for true performance.

There are 802.11 Super and Turbo G products on the market that boast
speeds up to 108
but then again, every device must be Super G or Turbo G capable or
they will all run at 54mbs
of less.

Thats it!
