I would say no for R2 versions.  You are better off upgrading to 2011 SBS with Premium Add-on for SBS to gain R2 at a cheaper cost license wise.

Depending on your need for R2 version and database size wise I wouldnt install SQL on my Primary DC and put it on 2nd server.

The following should answer your question:

The issue is not with the R2 but more with SBS.
If you are willing to try to install it as a non-default instance you might be able to.
The existing setup you have already has sql 2005.
Make sure you have the 32bit version of sql 2008 R2.
