How does a CAL affect users accessing web pages on a web server? Does
10 CAL mean that the server will only serve 10 users at a time?

Thank you in advance ...

It means that 10 clients can connect to the server simultaneously. The 11
client trying to connect to the server with 10 clients already connected
simultaneously, the 11th client is going to be denied the connection. This
applies to the Windows platform.

Yeah that's why you don't see many popular sites hosted on Windows
machines. I mean jeez, can you imagine having to buy a few million
licenses to allow the entire Internet to view your latest web site? No
wonder Gates is so *** ing rich.

You are better advised to use Linux for your web hosting ;-)

I am seriously thinking of using RAQ4s (Linux/Apache). Any thoughts?

You don't need CALs for each web user. In fact, you can even grab the
Web edition which is cheaper then 2003 Server.

I am not sure if I have ever come across something as a web edition on
eBay. Does it say Windows Server Web Edition?

No Web server on Earth or even a Web server farm is hosting a few million
clients simultaneously. A Web Server or a Web server farm is a stateless
connection with each client and one uses a state server to maintain client
state, along with load balancing in a Web server farm solution.

I wasn't aware that eBay was an authorized Microsoft distribution
partner.

And for a full feature comparison of the various 2003 offerings, see

2008 offers similar, but I don't have the URLs handy.
