I am going to buy a server with no Operating System.  I am going to purchase and install Windows 2003 Server.  I have 5 people who are going to use this server for file/print access.  After I purchase the Server 2003 software, do I need to also purchase 5 CALs or can the 5 users access the server for file/print straight out of the box?

It depends.

Unless you're buying an open license version, Server software comes standard with 5 CALs.

But you also have to remember that they have to cover the server itself, the printer, and the users.

So if you have 5 users, you may need to buy 2 more CALs.

I know that Small Business Server 2003 comes with 5 CALs...I am assuming the same applies to Server 2003?

Yep

Unless, like I said it's the open license software, and then it has 0.
