CRM 3.0 Installation error

Hi experts!

I want to install MS CRM 3.0 Professional on a Win2003 SP2 Server. The Server is a VServer with MS Virtual Machine, no Active Directory. Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server is installed [on MS SQL 2005 SP2] and all is working well. When I try to install MS CRM I get this error message:

Action Microsoft.Crm.Setup.Common.Analyzer+CollectAction failed. The specified Domain does not exist or no connection could be established.

Thank you very much in advance for helping me!

    Ok, I can make Exchange Server available, but can I establish Active Directory on a VServer?

    Hi There,

    If you dont want to have CRM's outlook integration or mailing facilities, you can skip exchange, however AD is must.

    I suggest to have a look at :
