    Hi Lee,

    As you may be knowing SAP is Platform Independent software i.e it can be installed on any OS and any Database(RDBMS). Since you are concentrating on the Harware Requirement i will stick on to only that, You need a minimum of 512MB RAM, 80GB HDD, an Intel P4 motherboard or any other processor with speed greater than 2GHz and a Network Card and Graphics card(both comes inbuilt nowadays) and this would be suffiecient at this point.

      Hi Lee,

      Regarding the architecture SAP is R/3 architecture i.e. it has Logically 3 layers(Presentation, Application and Database), all the 3 layers can be installed on a single system or separate systems, here presentation servers are the clients(i.e. GUI). Regarding 3-digit client(SAP), by default when you install the package three clients(000,001 and 066) are present, if you want to work on the SAP system you need to copy from either 000 or 001 client(we say it client copy-SCC3), to server different purpose we have different clients for ex:066 is an Early Watch client used for OSS, 000 is a SAP AG client which contains standard settings, if anything goes wrong in any clients you can refer to 000.
