Windows Home Server on a Mac Mini

This is a repost from Blog Kenst:

Thinking of new ways to use your current / old equipment is always fun. I really enjoy my Mac Mini, but I'm not sure if it's because of the Mac OS X Leopard operating system or just the look and feel of the nicely designed hardware. I think it's the hardware, which is where I came up with the idea of putting my Windows Home Server on my Mac Mini. Currently I have a (huge) dell workstation as my Home Server, but it's nothing special. At least this would be asthetically pleasing!

The article below is about replacing Mac OS X Leopard with Windows Home Server:

I would be more interested in setting up Windows Home Server on a Bootcamp partition so I could still have access to the Mac OS X side. Even though it has a small hard drive - 80GB, it could be loaded up with external hard drives, expanding it to 2 TB. I'll put this on my to do list!
