So if I’m just building a standalone server (more just for the experience
than anything else) all I need to be concerned about, as far as hardware
goes, is meeting the requirements of the OS?  

I have already built an HTPC where I play movies and music so, if I
understand correctly, the processor and RAM on the Tomcat server (where the
music and video will be stored) are not important.
