Windows 2003 DFS running in a workgroup

Is it possible to run Windows 2003 DFS in a workgroup?  I have two servers, in the same workgroup, that I would like to use DFS on.  The documentation I've found from MS doesn't address the requirement to have DFS in a domain or a workgroup.

I could be wrong, but the way I understand it is that even if the DFS is a "stand-alone" server, it has to be a member of a domain.  Clients that are in a workgroup can still access the DFS share on the domain by linking to the DNS FQDN of the DFS share though.

DFS will not work in a workgroup, it relies on Active Directory
