I have a Vista 32-bit desktop. Is there any way, using virtual technology, to deploy Windows Server 2008 on it?

You can install Virtual server 2005 and deploy a 32 bit server 2008 virtual machine.

You can also use Microsoft Virtual PC which will be more suitable for Vista:

Alternate to that might be VMware Workstation but this is not for free unfortunately:

Those two products will be most reliable for your use I'd say as your host OS is Vista.
