What is Microsoft Recommodations for : keeping sql server report services and database engine installed on the same box. - For SQL 2008.
For SQL 2005 it was recommended that these two components should be installed on separate servers, Does the same recommodation still apply for SQL 2008?

Always good idea to keep both separate.

Yes, I think it is always a good idea to separate the two. However I am assuming that you are not going to report on millions of records. Otherwise you would not have asked this question.
If I am right you can host them on the same server. However I would have created a separate database just for reports. This gives you some flexibility. For example: you can put the database in a read only state. This helps a lot with performance and deadlocks.
If you want to chat more, let me know. Otherwise I apologise for the assumption.
