Is there a type of server that would let you share a operating system throughout the network assuming you bought the licenses, but have individual files on each computer's hard drive such as user documents, or only applications that the user wants to download on the specific computer. Or do you have to run each computer separately with its own os on the hard drive?
Can this be a telnet server or is it an application server, or something else? Thnx for any replys.

Yes, it is called a Terminal Server that runs on Windows Server 2000/2003.

Hmmm. I think that you have to have an OS installed on each computer for this. I think this because it is the OS that manages devices, folders and files.

Well, a telnet server is a type of application server. The other part of this question was answered above.

A good server with 1000s of users maybe.

A good server does not need a T1. T1s are kinda pricey and not necessary for every "good" server.
