While there are some similarities between a server and desktop they are actually quite unique. I had a dentist request I review their server. The IT company that they had purchased it from had basically plugged it in, turned it on, created a couple of user accounts and left the rest up to them.
The Dentist had no idea what he had paid for or what exactly was the purpose of the server. On Small Business Servers there is a long list of features that need to be configured prior to use. The file server is responsible to not only logging on users but automating and sharing many tasks along with access to your business when you are away from the office.
The Desktop computer uses more of a basic installation but if you have a server on your network and have never added a desktop to your domain it can be confusing to a novice user. With a server on the network you need to add the computer to the network domain and insure that the user account exists so users can log in and utilize all the features of having a file server on your network.
