We are going to begin installation of SCOM 2007 R2 and have some configuration questions. Our goal is use existing hardware and want to make sure we have the server roles in the right places.

Here is what we are planning. We have 100 Servers (60 physical / 40 virtual) that we are going to be monitoring. The applications include Sharepoint, Exchange, and SQL Server as well as .NET applications.

We will have a dedicated system running the SQL backend. Our expectation is that the system will be used as both the DataStore and the Audit Database. The server will be running Windows 2008 x64 Enterprise SP2 and SQL 2008 fully patched. This will be using the SCOM 2007 R2 product.

We intend to use virtual systems for our Management Server and Operations Console. We would like to install both roles onto the same virtual system if at all possible. This server will also be running Windows 2008 x64 Enterprise SP2

Reporting Services will be it's own separate VM. Again running the same OS.

Is this scenario one that is acceptable? Any other things we should be concerned about?

Yes, that sound good.
Virtual is not really a problem if you have enough resources the RMS  (first Managament server installed) is a critical roll so that one should have fast io and good connection to the DB server. Mem and cpu you can find in the planning guide (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb309428.aspx) see Recommended Hardware Requirements.
The firts management server is the RMS and should not have agents connected to it so you should use it only as a failover management server. and the second management server is perfect as a virual machine.
Have fun building your environment,

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
