Does Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager work with SBS 2008

Does Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager work with SBS 2008?
If we are running a small office using SBS 2008 Standard, single box as the back-end
2 LAN desktops running XP Pro SPack 3, MSO 2007 with Business Contact Manager
2 WAN desktops running XP Pro connecting to Exchange via VPN or RPC over HTTP
1) Can we place and share the Business Contact Manager Database on the SBS 2008 Standard server.
2) How can the WAN users get access to the Business Contact Manager Database

I don't believe there is a way to place the BCM 2007 database on a SBS 2008 server (that is not running Outlook 2007). This may be fixed in BCM for Outlook 2010 but that has yet to be released.

As long as the machines from the WAN are vpn'd in and can access the workstation where the BCM database is located you should not have a problem.

Thanks,
What else needs to run on the SBS 2008 Std box (64 bit) to support the Business Contact Manager database?
The MSDN Database Admin Tool to migrate the database to the server is only 32 bit? http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b8e7aa0f-f593-4fb4-b822-dd662af1a6cb&displaylang=en We are not running MSO 2007 on the server (since that is not recommened).
Can I run the flavors of SQL databases that comes with SBS 2008 Std. or do we need to buy anything else?
Can we use RPC over HTTP for the WAN users?

the Business contact manager database resides on the machine that initially installs it first on their workstation, who then shares out that DB to the other collobarative users.

We need the technique where the database is hosted on the server (since it is always on and avialable), and the server does not have BCM installed. This is a documented installation but the documentation is missing for using SBS 2008.
