The smallest one I've ever had in production was a Pentium-I 120 with 64MB
RAM and a 340MB IDE-Drive but I bet it could be even smaller :-)

It depends on the size of your cell but if it's really only a Database
server, you should just make sure that the Database fits into the disk cache
(my current database is ~ 8MB for 5 fileservers, 1300 volumes and 500
users). You should add some CPU power if the server is a Kerberos-KDC, too.
