5 servers:
Telnet server
Apache webserver
FTP server
WWW File share server
Mailserver
Is that the only 5-server combination possible?

No, there's many more types of servers. Like game servers you can run.

I don't get it, your supposed to shell out your own cash for this? That doesn't make any sense. I had a similar project in school and all the parts were just in the lab for us.

Depending on the needs of the server, you can't go with the cheapest of stuff. For example, if the servers has a database in it that gets tons of hits, you'd better make sure to have a Raptor in there or something. Otherwise, you might be bogged down if there are a lot of requests. Also, if you are supporting a lot of thin-clients, then your server better be damn powerful with respect to CPU and memory.

etc.
etc.
etc.
