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 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.
