I have an application developed with Visual C++ using dbase database through ODBC. The database is on a workstation with other workstations mapping onto its harddisk.  Will simply moving the database onto a Windows 2000 Server with Windows95/98 workstations hooking into it significantly improve speed? Or do I actually have to also get SQL server?

It depends what you mean by significant.  Check out the benchmark tests on PC Magazine's website.  It is significantly faster than Windows 98/95.  You need to have at least 128MB of RAM to be really productive.  But it should be more reliable than 98/95 at any rate.

I need a more specific answer.  By significant I mean is it 10% faster 80% faster.  So how much faster (speed) will data access be if this xbase database is on a Windows 2000 Server?
