You need a web server that can execute PHP scripts. The Apache server is the overwhelming first choice for most of the people currently running Drupal. Drupal's core distribution is always tested with the latest 1.3.x version of Apache, but Drupal is known to work with the 2.0.x versions as well. Less common, but also supported, is the use of the Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) server. (For more information about running Drupal with the Windows IIS server, see http://drupal.org/node/3854 and http://drupal.org/node/940.)
