I have tried finding something that lists the exact requirements for exchange server 2007 Enterprise system requirements, I have found a page on microsoft that lists Exchange server 2007 requirements covering Standard and Enterprise, but nothing just pertaining to enterprise.  I need to know if Enterprise requires Windows server Enterprise software to run.

No, it does not.  The "Enterprise" part of Exchange referes to features (actually more scalability) you get with that edition.  It has nothing to do with what platform you run on.

As mds-cos said, no it does not, but it does require a 64 bit version of windows 2003 server.

What you intend on doing with the Exchange Server is ultimately the proper System Requirements for Exchange. A single server acting as a Hub Transport, CAS, Mailbox Server for thousands of users obviously needs to be of a higher specification than a server for a small 10 user workgroup.

The official minimum requirements can be found at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996719.aspx, but bear in mind that what you do with the server is ultimately what will determine the actual requirements for your situation.

As for Enterprise Edition, both Standard and Enterprise have the same minimum requirements. There are no additional features in Enterprise which cannot be run on the lowest spec machine as per the system requirements.
