Do you mean configure Server 2008 to connect to a SAN? Or have server 2008 BE a SAN?

Unless you have server 2008 storage server, you can't use it as a SAN server. You would need to purchase iSCSI Target software from Microsoft.

Support for a SAN server does not come included with Server 2008 Standard Edition. As LegendZM has said, you must purchase iSCSI software from Microsoft in order to add SAN server capability to your Server 2008 server. The exception to this is the Storage edition, where it will automatically support a SAN.

This link is for 2003 Server, but it's still talking and discussing iSCSI: http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsServer2003/technologies/storage/iscsi/default.mspx

MS won't sell you iSCSI target software, it's only available through Storage Server OEMs. I don't think RoketDivision have released their iSCSI target for 2008 yet, nor does Datacore's SanMelody.
