Types of Servers

Im looking for a tutorial on all of the types of servers (ftp, router, firewall, gateway, web, etc), what they do, and how they interact with the network.

Basically what Im looking for is how an ideal and complete network may be set up. Im not sure if Im being clear! Please ask for clarification if you need it!

It would be nice if such a tutorial exists on the internet, but if not, I would be willing to spend a little $$ on a good book.
