All a server is, really, is a glorified PC.  It typically has a larger/faster/multiple processor(s) and more RAM installed.
Good servers are set up with redundant disks (RAID) to limit hard disk failures from crashing the server (one drive dies - you simply replace it).  They may also be designed to devote their resources to network throughput rather than local processes...

For a 'textbook' definition:
>>Server - A computer on a network that is dedicated to a particular purpose and which stores all information and performs the critical functions for that purpose. For example, a Web server would store all files related to a Web site and perform all work necessary for hosting the Web site. Most congressional offices have at least one server that is dedicated as both a network server and a file server. This means that, in its network server role, the computer is responsible for holding the files and managing the processes that enable everyone in the office to access and use the network. In its file server role, it holds the central computer files and the CMS database.<<ref: http://www.congressonlineproject.org/glossary.html#S

Typically, specific servers run better with different hardware configurations.
A database server would benefit from faster processors and disks than a standard file and print server...

jay4,
Guess I'm still lost here then.
You can ask what a server has for CPU, RAM, Disks, etc - and get 50,000 different combinations.
What do you need here?
Servers also come in many varieties as far as OS/NOS (Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac, Novell Netware, etc, etc, etc....)

Just need to make sure - we're both bound by the membership agreement here.  If I help out with a homework question, I can have my account suspended (or at least get a slap on the wrist <ouch>!) :D

Anyway, as it's not - let's see.  First of all - 'which' server are you referring to?  
I have a server here in front of me that has a 2Ghz dual-processor XEON installed with 2.5GB of memory and 400GB of availalbe storage striped across 3 arrays.

No problem helping you find out about a server here.  
If this doesn't help answer your question - maybe I need some more detail as to what you're looking for..??
