If it's going to be strictly web, then I would say Windows 2003 web edtion server OS, coupled with IIS 6.0 (included).

As far as the development/programming side...I would recommend the Visual Studio .NET suite and an MSDN subscription.

Lots and lots of info here:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/webservices/

I'm not a web developer though...

I agree with THEcleaner, the web edition is specifically geared towards web applications.  If this was a production server it would also be the best way to go for web deployments =)  I use a combination of VS .NET and dreamweaverMX.

Now if you need to install SQL server, then web edition is NOT your choice.  You can't install SQl server on the web edition, you would have to install the windows 2003 standard edition.

Thank you.  I will go with the windows 2003 standard edition, sql.  Since I am
use to vb6.0 and I want to get my sites up and running I will load that.  However,
I will have the VS .Net installed.  I do not have the dreamweaverMX since it
is not a microsoft product.  Do I need to buy that? I currently just code by hand, but
since I am just playing around with this, I will need to save a much time a possible.

Thanks alot.
