Really depends on size...

Generally speaking, bit more like a web server - tons of memory, bit of disk (fast disk), it will likely be swapping (again depends on cube size a bit) so probaly sas disks instead of sata. And can be compute bound from time to time - depending on what / how you build some of the MDX / DMX queries...

use quad core CPU - plent of caching. RAID1 73 gig sas disks for system, same again for cubes - maybe even larger depending on number and size of cubes. Min 8 gig of memory, Windows Enterprise + SQL Enterprise probably on 64-bit op-sys, and then can add memory as needed.

If you can give an indication of size, and nature of cubes, then could give a better indication...

there is a performance guide which you might find helpfull... http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/5/e/85eea4fa-b3bb-4426-97d0-7f7151b2011c/SSAS2005PerfGuide.doc
