Can I take a backup image and restore it on a different server?

Server 2003 backup image, want to restore it on a windows 2008 R2 server as a virtual server.  To be able to experiment and test.  If so what would be the basic steps and software to use in a small business setting.

There are several different software vendors that support image restore on different hardware. Best thing to do would be is download the 30 day trials to see which one works best for you.
I have used:

Acronis True Image
Symantec System Recovery Small Business

Each software has it's own procedures so it would be difficult to lay them out for you
