I have a working Windows Server 2003 (Small Business Edition) and I'd like to create a virtual machine of this installation. I'm planning to use MS Virtual Server. How can I get this done?

The Virtual Server 2005 Migration Toolkit should allow you to do this. It is designed to assist in moving from a physical to a virtual machine.

If 2008 is an option, it's possible to create a VM of this server while it's up and running using Windows 2008 Server (the Hyper V role is the upgrade/replacement to MS Virtual Server) and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
