In addition to what Thomas said, note that there are specialized
programs intended to manage several repositories on a server:
gitolite [1] and gitosis [2].  Setting up a server by hand is simpler,
but if you intend to use SSH transport for accessing it, it means every
developer will need a proper user account on the server, and all these
accounts should have correct r/w permissions on the repository.
Depending on your requirements this might be a somewhat complicated
task to carry out properly, and then these specialized solutions might
help, especially if they're packaged for your server OS.
