Most (if not all) client/server software works fine on a single machine.
If your goal is to create more complex environments that your probably
want virtual machines (KVM, VirtualBox, Xen, etc.)

Kind regards,

You first sentence indicates I may know even less than I thought I might.

To verify we are talking about the same thing:
I'm envisioning a Debian repository on the "server".
I will then use netinst to install Debian on the "client".
Later a browser running on the "client" will be able to access an HTML page on the "server" or connect to a page on the WWW via dial-up.

Recommended client/server software for a newbie?
