In theory.  If you have the drivers for Windows and it runs on x64 hardware

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)
