Default Color Space

What is meant by "color space", and why is it important?

I read where NEC just introduced a "22-inch CRT Adobe RGB monitor", and that it is calibrated to the Adobe RGB color space. What does this mean?

I know color images look different depending on the monitor you view them on, and I know that there needs to be some kind of standard such that what gets seen by the viewer (on screen, or printed) matches what the photographer saw in his viewfinder, but how does all this work?

I posted this link previously from the dpReview Minolta forum that seems to explain this better than anyone:
