"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.

A server is simply a collection of hardware (a box) that runs a server operating system. Usually the hardware is far more redundant and efficient than what you would find on a typical PC. With that said, you could always install server software on a PC if you were so inclined (though I wouldn't recommend it). Sometimes the hardware has been tested and approved by big name server software developers such as Microsoft; which has servers that are certified to run MS Server 2003 Data Center Edition. A domain controller is a server, and one of it's functions is to act as a domain controller. The term domain controller is used to describe a "role" the server plays, not to differentiate it from one server or another. Much like you can have a server perform the role of being a print server, file server, exchange server, etc....sometimes a single box will perform many roles.
