An alternative to DSpace is Eprints, that also comes with free software. Both DSpace and Eprints support the Open Archives Initiative.

Oxford University's computer services has a quick guide to eprints, explaining the concept and linking to example repositories. The Eprints site now also has a comprehensive Eprints Handbook which covers everything from the principles of open access to how to install the software.
