Can someone give me a list of the type of Server hardware and software components should be monitored in a Microsoft and Novell environment?  
Also is there a better server monitoring tool than Compaq Insight Manager in this type of environment?

Theoretically the fewer components you monitor the better your response will be to a problem.

Setting components and thresholds is far too complex a task to describe in here. I suggest you consider the following products:

MOM (Microsoft Operations Manager)
BMC Patrol
NetIQ AppManager

NetIQ have excellent online resources concerning conponents and thresholds.
