Microsoft has pleasantly surprised us with a pair of ISO files for download, x86 and x64, with a 60 day evaluation period in Server 2008's various editions! Keep in mind that the files are quite large.
Here are the links to the download pages:

- Windows Server 2008 Datacenter Eval Download Page

Best work with Server 2008 soon, as SBS 2008 is just around the corner.
