I am looking for the cheapest possible way to host a bespoke ASP.NET intranet site with Microsoft SQL Express 2008. I assume that Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation is the way to go, but does it support IIS? There will only be about 5 clients on the LAN, so the hardware limitations aren't an issue.

Yes it does. No offense nbolton, but this information isn't that hard to find.

Click the Compare Editions link on the right, open the PDF document, and see that web services (IIS) is fully supported.

None taken! :) You're probably just more observant than me. I wasn't expecting it to be a PDF (I thought that usually MS have a web page for the feature comparison table). – nbolton Nov 10 '11 at 20:45
That's been my experience too although I've been seeing them using pdf's more and more. Go figure. – joeqwerty Nov 10 '11 at 21:14
This link goes to 2012, not 2008. Information included in the answer would be more persistent. – xpda Mar 13 '13 at 4:22
