Looking for Windows 2k8/IIS plan

At work I've just been dropped in the deep end with handling some support work for our Windows servers running IIS. I've got a reasonable understanding of how it works, but I've never actually had access to a 2K8 server running IIS to get some hands-on experience, so I'm looking for a relatively low-cost plan that will let me get that ahead of being unleashed on the real servers.

I just need the bare minimums that Windows/IIS requires (512MB-1GB RAM, 40GB-ish disk) in terms of - there will never be public sites running off the server, all I'll be doing is messing around with setting up new sites/application pools etc, general systems admin maintenance stuff. Huge dandwidth, SSD's etc aren't necessary, and I don't really care where it's located either. I will need a price including a license as I don't have my own.

In terms of price, I'd obviously like this for LEB price, but I'm realistic; I only want this for a few months for my own learning, but can pay upfront for a quarter if it helps get the price down.

Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.
