I would use Hyper-V if you have Dual CPU's with Quad Cores, but I would
have one said of RAID-1 drives on a controller for the Parent and the
Child SBS 2008 installation and a second RAID 0+1 or RAID 5 for the
Child SQL server install. I would set SBS 08 to use 2 cores of the first
CPU and SQL to use 6 cores if SQL has a heavy load, if SQL has a light
load then I would set SBS for all 4 cores of CPU 1 and SQL for all 4
cores of CPU 2.
