I think first you need to decide why you want a server... i.e. what do you
want it to do?
I use a server as a firewall and an email fetcher (other machines POP their
mail from it) on a mixed network. There's no real magic to a server for
simple stuff... it's just normal linux. (mail, networking, firewall, etc)
