Its not supported by Apple, but so long as you have all the Vista drivers for the hardware in the machine I can't see why it wouldn't work.

Thank you for the response. I thought that would have been the case, but wasn't sure, hence my posting the question. However a little more detail. Would you think it would be better if I run SBS 2008 as a VM or directly on the MAC Server?

Performance-wise, it'd be best to install it directly on the Mac using Boot Camp. However if you need to run Mac software at the same time you'll have to install it in a VM (I use Parallels myself, though VMWare is also supposed to be good, VirtualBox is also good for a freebie)
