I have just bought a server and would like to start hosting a website on it, I have a legit version of Windows Server 2003. Anyone?

I'm typing this from memory, so please don't kill me if something is wrong or vague.
Open the Server Manager (it should open when you log in). Click "Add or remove" for the server roles. Click next. Select Application Server (IIS). On the next page you can enable ASP.NET if you want server-side scripting. Finish the installation by obeying the wizard.
To change settings for IIS you can click Start, administrative tools, internet information services manager. Your website should be located at c:inetpubwwwroot. Also if you want to have a somewhat real website you will probably want to upgrade ASP.NET past version 1.

Yeah, basically you use the server manager to add a role, and install internet information services. You might want to try your server under linux, though.
