The server install is not even an option when you run setup.exe under XP, which is funny, because when you run the setup.exe for the Exchange BES under XP, the server option is there.
I am running bes express 4.1 for groupwise on a windows xp sp2 virtual machine in a xen environment and have been for about 6 months. running great for the few devices its supporting. Make sure its xp pro and not home and you should be good to go.
