We run Widows 2003 + MSSQL 2006 on top of Linux with XEN. If hardware
limitations are the reason for your request, this is one way todo it.
I know it will work on VMWare & VirtualBox as well. If you have the
spare hardware, then rather run Windows server on it's own hardware,
the performance will be better.
