Rather than try to use Virtual Server, which won't work for SBS since it
only supports 32-bit clients, you need to enable the Hyper-V Role on the
Server 2k8 box if your CPU and BIOS support hardware virtualization. Hyper-V
will allow you to create 64-bit VMs and run SBS 2008.
If your CPU is 64-bit, but does NOT support hardware virtualization (as some
older 64-bit CPUs won't), then your best bet is VMWare.
