a) the beeping is probably your motherboard telling you that somethings wrong. check the manual or website for the motherboard. usually theyll explain what the beeps mean

b) use a computer.....as a fire wall? dont you mean a proxy server?

there are 3 jumpers on the board. it was empty so i set it to normal. now when i boot, the 2 beeps are gone and the monitor will detect the video cause it will flicker and the green light will stay on. the problem now is that after the monitor turns on, there is still no video. just a blank screen.

Forget about all that crap. Why would you want to run a Windows server anyways. I can tell you how to remotely install FreeBSD/OpenBSD. Till you get the video figured out, that's about all you can do.
