have a project im looking into at present.

looking to buy a beefy HP server to run 3-6 hyperv machines running:

blackberry server,
BES Express,

can you confirm if hyperv comes with windows 2008 r2?
will i need to use 1x nic as local/lan setup and the other that is for hyperv machines?
is win 2k8 x64 only?
what sort of storage am i looking at (no san) for the server?
where shoudl i store the VM's on the server - D:\?
how much is windows 2008 with hyper v and an adequate server going to be for this project?
vmware too costly?

anything else i might be missing out, let me know?
