"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well, you're not looking at a whole lot there...

Server R2 would require min 512.   You'd do fine giving the server 4gb of ram.
Server R2 would require 32gb drive.  Exchange requires 1.2 gb on top of that, Your users are going to need 15-30gb depending how generous you are with mailbox sizes... So plan 100gb drive.
Processor has to be x64. 2ghz + is fine.
