Yes you should be able to setup mirroring between 2005 and 2008, but some of the new features of 2008 won't be available like automatic page repair.

Just tested.... and it only works one way :-(

I can mirror a database from a 2005 to a 2008 and it works.... but when I make a failover the 2008 server becomes principal but the mirroring is suspended and I can't resume it.
