2008SBS - IBM x226

Hi Experts

I understand the IBM x226 is using x86 architecture, but is there any way of getting SBS 2008 Standard installed on this server? I have the SBS 2008 Standard in my MS Action pack and am excited to get my hands dirty with it...
Another note, would it work on a workstation with at least 4GB of RAM running a Core2 Duo? (I'm assuming yes, but if I'm wrong, let me know...)

Hello MarkMichael,

SBS only runs on 64bit hardware, because it is using exchange 2007.
Also a MINIMUM of 4GB ram is required.
