What do you mean?
In order to have a BES and so on, you need some server flavor of Windows, 2000 or 2003. Exchange is what most BES tend to use, but Groupwise and Notes (Notes being the worst of the lot from all accounts, not in terms of integrating with BES but in general). That provides email support.
BES needs a database, like SQL 2000. I used a decently high end distro of it.
Obviously, you'll need the devices themselves.
Thats it for tecnical requirements. A dedicated server box (can use it for other things but I'd recommend against that) and a database (which can live on the same server). Oh, setup is a real PITA but its covered in the docs decently enough...
