Adobe Illustrator on Windows Server 2003

I'm installing Adobe CS4 on Windows 2003.  Everything installs but Illustrator and Soundbooth.  I've found a few articles of people having the same issue and adobe says only compatible with XP.

I found these instructions on the net on how to change the xml file:

1 - copy the complete setup DVD or unpack the .iso if you are a
naughty warez user to any location on your hdd

2 - in the folder that contains your CS4 setup locate the subfolder
named 'payloads' that contains the payloads, and in that folder locate
the following files

payloads\AdobeIllustrator14mul\AdobeIllustrator14mul.proxy.xml - for
illustrator
payloads\AdobeSoundbooth2All\AdobeSoundbooth2All.proxy.xml - for sound
booth

3 - you will have to edit both of the files using notepad in the
following way:
   locate the text that says: '"Server2003":{"Exclude":true}' and
replace it with (a very logical one :))) '"Server2003":
{"Require":true}'

4 - when you have edited and saved both of the files locate and run
setup.exe in the folder to which you have copied (and modified) your
setup


Is Illustrator and Soundbooth truly not compatible with 2003?  General concensus I read is that 2003 is basically XP.  Does anyone have experience with this fix or am I asking for trouble?

I went ahead and made the script mods and installed to Server 2003.   Installed completed.  Will wait for application users feedback as to whether it behaves normally or not.

If you are using the Master Collection, make sure to change that file on Disk 1 and 3
