Well ideally fiber optic but since we dont all have loads of cash to toss around 100Base-T ethernet will do the trick quite nicely. Yes, you can run all of the servers on one computer but the cpu load (especially with lots of users) is significant enough to decrease the performance of the servers. Its best to distribute the servers onto different computers.
