BlackBerry Professional Software/Server cannot be installed on an x64 OS or on Server 2008. Depending on the amount of users you plan to have on the BES you can either virtualize it or put it on another server. The installation instructions are clean cut for this process...

I have several BES servers on x64, it has been supported for over 6 months now. I think it was SP2 or SP3 that had it included.

I havnt installed on Server 08 yet though. I do agree w/ simsjrg... virtualization would be your best friend. Load up a hyperV and give it a whirl!
