Among Visual Studio 2005/2008 requirements I don't see any restriction about Vista. It says: Windows 2003 or Vista.
About the IIS, it is installed with Visual Studio, if you install the Web Development tools.
Visual Studio 2005 will require mandatory update with SP1, but I suggest you to install VS 2008 instead because it is specially targeted to Vista OS.

I have Vista Home in my laptop and run VS 2005 and 2008 without problems.
I can compile, debug and deploy. Have installed the generated installers without problem too.
Also I have SQL Server 2005 Express Edition running.

If you are not planning to connect to a corporate domain, then you don't need the Vista Business
