Price for starters, support for hardware, limited amount of users in home server, home server is 2003/XP based 2008 is vista based. Apart from that I assume home server has some annoying management thingy like SBS does.
I'm not sure what features are available or left out in home server, ie domains and the likes.
Either way, if you're comparing home server and server 2008, forget about enterprise, compare to standard.

You're better off telling us what you want to do.

Home Server makes all HDDs appear as one huge pool. It's much easier to set up, but a lot more basic.
