Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

what I want to do is get cpanel on my dedicated server. Would the VPS optimized edition work? I will only be using it for personal purposes. I have maybe 5 of my own sites that I would like to host. Would it work? Thanks.

From a quick look, I'd say this probably violates the license. –  Michael Hampton Sep 6 '12 at 20:48
This is technically off topic, as you state this is for personal use, rather than professional. –  dunxd Sep 12 '12 at 13:47

When you install cPanel, it checks the environment and licenses that server accordingly. You can't install a VPS license on dedicated hardware, and vice versa.

I have couple Virtual servers with VPS cPanel license. As far as I know, the only requirement is that server has to be virtual. So if your dedicated server is Virtual - it will work.
