Given how "green" the 2008 versions of both windows and SQL server are, you would be best to go with the stable and well established server 2003 and SQL 2005. I have several production sites running on those platforms and they are solid.

A lot of folks follow the "after service pack 1" philosophy for upgrading. Let the RTM into the wild for a bit, let microsoft work out the issues and release the first SP. Then it should be suitable for production use.
