I have a testing production environment with Windows 2003 at work.

I run about three Windows 2003 servers in VMWare at a time.

Can the Macbook:

1) Run Windows 2003 in Bootcamp?
2) Run Windows 2003 Virtualized in Mac OS X?

Shouldn't be a problem to get it running. Finding drivers for everything is a different matter. However i think it is compatible with XP drivers.

VMWare or Parallels might ironically be easier, since you'll only need drivers for the "virtual" environment, which is relatively much simpler than the Core architecture and so on...

It would probably be better running it under virtualization as long as your needs can cater with that, due to the lack of compatibility with bootcamp at the moment.

Stick to VMware Fusion and I believe you should be able to move the machines seamlessly between platforms. That feature alone will probably make VMware the best option.
