As others have said, the requirements for Tomcat itself are pretty 
minimal; anything that will run windows effectively will handle tomcat 
itself ok.   Your application, OTOH may need much more capacity.  If you 
tell us a little more about what your app is doing, how many 
simultaneous users, etc, we'll be able to give more accurate suggestions.

As an example, I have an app that takes continuous data feeds from about 
330 locations around the country, totaling around 2.5M lines and 210 MB 
of data per day.  It runs on a dual-core dual processor Xeon with 2GB 
RAM running Windows server 2003, Tomcat 5.5 and Java 1.5, and very 
rarely rises above 2% CPU usage or 600MB memory usage.  So obviously I'm 
over-spec'd with this machine.
