Hyper-V can only be installed as a role on a 64-bit server O/S. There is a role installation for a version of Server 2008 x32 but it's only the administration console and cannot host VMs.

If it is the 32-bit version of 2008 server standard then no.  A 64-bit version of 2008 server OS on a 64-bit processor that supports hardware virtualization (Intel VT or AMD-V) is required for Hyper-V role and Virtual machines.
