No, it will not work.  SBS 2008 is NOT supported as a VM Host because most VMHost Software (including HyperV) installs multiple network adapters and that breaks the wizards and can cause networking issues.

What SHOULD work is installing ESXi or Hyper-V (the free, downloadable version) and then installing both SBS and 2003 into VMs.
