    I was going to install Leopard Server on my Mac Pro along with normal Leopard and Vista. To make it a little more complicated, I was going to do it on another hard drive in bay 2. Will this cause any issues booting all 3 or if I decide to remove it later on?

    None whatsoever. You can have as many different version of OS X installed as you want, on as many different drives as you want.

    I put in my Server disk on my Mac Pro 08 and it gives me the grey curtain of death (kernal panics, but thought the term was funny) everytime. I tried it on my girlfriend's Macbook and it would boot perfectly fine. Any suggestions?

    I talked to someone in Server support regarding this. The problem is the DVD does not have the proper drivers. I would need to install Leopard and update to 10.5.2. Once that is done, I will need to upgrade to server.

    So I'd create a new partition, install a new version of Leopard on it... keeping your existing partition with regular Leopard on it... upgrade the new version to 10.5.2... then install server no that partition... voila! Multi-Boot!
